[aur-general] Go package dependencies

Hi there,

I am co-maintaining a few AUR packages written in Golang and I just ran
namcap on my built package. I got the following output on a few of my
golang packages:

$ namcap influxdb-1.4.3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
influxdb E: Dependency glibc detected and not included (libraries
['usr/lib/libpthread.so.0', 'usr/lib/libc.so.6'] needed in files
['usr/bin/influx_inspect', 'usr/bin/influx_stress', 'usr/bin/influx',
'usr/bin/influx_tsm', 'usr/bin/influxd'])

However 'glibc' is in the base group, and I thought that it wasn't
necessary to declare dependencies from the base group since it should
always be installed on a fresh OS install. Am I wrong about this point?
Should I be including 'glibc' as a dependency in this package? Should I be
including 'bash' as a dependency in packages with scripts that use bash?

Thank you!
