patch to delete math/gotoblas

math/gotoblas is broken and since it is horribly outdated, there is no point in trying to fix the build.

Wikipedia summarizes the issue better than I could: "GotoBLAS remains available, but development ceased with a final version touting optimal performance on Intel's Nehalem architecture (contemporary in 2008). OpenBLAS is an actively maintained fork of GotoBLAS" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GotoBLAS)

So I don't think this port is useful anymore and as OpenBLAS is available as a port, there is an alternative.

Thanks - I will mark it DEPRECATED and set it to expire at the end of 2022Q1.

    math/gotoblas: Remove obsoleted port

    math/gotoblas is broken on multiple platforms and is very outdated. By
    Wikipedia, "GotoBLAS remains available, but development ceased with a
    final version touting optimal performance on Intel's Nehalem
    architecture (contemporary in 2008). OpenBLAS is an actively maintained
    fork of GotoBLAS".
