    Yet another Yogurt - An AUR Helper written in Go

    You probably built the -git versions. go and rust generally use lots of small libraries written in their respective languages, so you will see the compiler download 20+ packages when you are building them from source. The compiler/linker is smart enough to only include the bits that are actually used from the libraries and stuff like ssl and compression/decompression still come from system shared libs, so you still only end up with a ~6MB binary in the end.
