Build Go from source

I’m adding a new step at our CI to build and exec our application tests against the Go tip every day. The problem is, I’m having trouble building Go from source. My dockerfile isn’t finished and it looks like this:

FROM debian:stretch

RUN apt update \
  && DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt install --no-install-recommends -y ca-certificates=20161130+nmu1+deb9u1 build-essential=12.3 golang=2:1.7~5 git=1:2.11.0-3+deb9u4 gcc=4:6.3.0-4 \
  && apt clean \
  && rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/*

RUN git clone /usr/local/go \
  && cd /usr/local/go/src/ \
  && bash all.bash

This is the build output:

root@60f6ffea56ba:/usr/local/go/src# bash all.bash
Building Go cmd/dist using /usr/lib/go-1.7.
Building Go toolchain1 using /usr/lib/go-1.7.
Building Go bootstrap cmd/go (go_bootstrap) using Go toolchain1.
Building Go toolchain2 using go_bootstrap and Go toolchain1.
Building Go toolchain3 using go_bootstrap and Go toolchain2.
Building packages and commands for linux/amd64.

2019/02/27 12:10:35 Failed: exit status 1

Already have the gcc installed, am I missing something?
Did the test with a sable branch like release-branch.go1.12, but it gives the same error…

This looks like a successful build for me with some tests failing.

Why run them at all? Just build and install.

Nevermind… I need some sleep. Sorry and thanks!
