Building go with gccgo

Is there a way to build go with gccgo?
I am trying to build go on sparc Solaris and I have gccgo available on that platform.

Even if you do manage to build the toolchain on sparc using gccgo, the built toolchain will not be able to create binaries for sparc because the code for that just isn’t there. You could use it to cross compile for amd64 or something, but it seems like a needlessly complex endeavor for that result.

Is there any document describing the steps needed to port the toolchain to a new platform, including modifying the toolchain to create binaries that will run on the new platform?

I would post on golang-dev, someone has been working on a solaris/sparc64 port for a few years now.
