Go 1.13 introduced[1] a new "trimpath" flag in charge of removing the
references to the go toolchain in the produced ELFs. We used to remove
these references using the "remove-go-reference" function. This function
was executed after go install. By using this new trimpath flag, we don't
have to remove any store path from the ELFs produced by go install.

We're not using any go older than 1.13 anymore, it's safe to remove
these functions.
