I made an amd64 VM to test and it went fine:


install -d "/usr/local/bin" && install -m 0755 "wireguard-go"

gmake: Leaving directory '/usr/src/wireguard/wireguard-go-0.0.20190908'

[+] Cleaning up build directory

comptest# ls /usr/include/machine/

_float.h            exec.h              limits.h            rbus_machdep.h
_types.h            fenv.h              loadfile_machdep.h  reg.h

I think your comp-less box was messed up in more ways than you know,
probably because of the random "lets poke here, rerun unrelated fw_update
there" and you had no idea which of your actions made it back into a usable
shape again. Redo your test from scratch (without skipping the compiler
set) and post the output on a pastebin.

If there is an error it needs to get fixed for real and not with
hand-wavingly delete include files needed for other things.

May the most significant bit of your life be positive.
