Well observed!  I test with the following environment, with and without
guile-lib, and could confirm that the tests/go.scm file was missing from
the dist archive when guile-lib was not present.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
guix environment --ad-hoc --pure autoconf@2.69 automake@1.16.2 bzip2@1.0.8 
disarchive@0.2.1 gettext-minimal@0.20.1 glibc-utf8-locales@2.31 gnutls@3.6.15

guile-zlib@0.1.0 guile-zstd@0.1.1 guile@3.0.7 gzip@1.10 help2man@1.47.13 
libgcrypt@1.8.5 pkg-config@0.29.2 po4a@0.63 sqlite@3.31.1 texinfo@6.7

autoconf gettext xz tar gzip make gcc-toolchain imagemagick help2man
[env]$ ./bootstrap && ./configure && make -j32 && make dist
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

There was a problem where these files had embedded file names:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
error: store file names embedded in the distribution
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I had not seen this issue and it'll need to be investigated.  For now I
disabled the check to get the dist archive produced.

Pushed with 0f853ab7731da4784a24cad7b08d6b9b633f5787.

Thank you!
