No. For building go, installing newlib and the rtems-headers is sufficient.

I haven't tried building fortran or objc for RTEMS for years.
Similar to Ada (Which I know has this problem), Fortran can be expected 
to have issues with fixed-size types on "exotic targets".

Again, the issue with Ada is: On Linuxes with "insufficient GCC", 
building an Ada-enabled cross-c/c++/fortran/objc/java GCC requires to 
replace the native "c/c++/fortran/objc/java/Ada"-enabled GCC when 
building it - It's up to the beholder to draw his own conclusions.
