      if $GOROOT != ""
      set rtp+=$GOROOT/misc/vim

      Or else, use the standard directories ($HOME/.vim and $HOME/.vim/after for user-private scripts, $VIM/vimfiles and $VIM/vimfiles/after for system-wide scripts not distributed with Vim, and $VIMRUNTIME — at the moment, normally $VIM/vim74 — for ONLY the files that come with Vim). These are the 'runtimepath' default. On Unix-like OSes, $VIM is usually /usr/local/share/vim but it may vary a little from one installation to the next; one factor may be whether you compiled Vim yourself or got it from the same source as your OS.

      One way to "have it both ways" if you don't need _different_ scripts in $GOROOT/misc/vim and $HOME/.vim is to symlink the latter to the former on installations where $GOROOT is defined.
