Can't we just use server-side includes?  I once wrote some
SSI/CGI for exactly this purpose.  Each page would have an
SSI directive that included the results of a CGI script.
The CGI script was like ten lines of sh that just checked
for the existence of the page in other languages and then
printed some links.

Alternatively, we can avoid the CGI and just SSI include a
static file of links.  This file can be generated by libgo
after it knows exactly which languages built.

But then again, maybe we should just fix the documents
that are failing to build.
