Sure, I just mentioned it, it's easy to miss those things; and in some
projects it could be important.
Encryption-wise I will be using this as an additional layer of security on
top of regular symmetric encryption which I have already implemented. My
security consultant advised me to use NTRU.
If a good security consultant advised then just disregard my opinion about
NTRU. I'm just a little conservative regarding those things.
Thanks for the response, I assume from what you are saying that it is
possible to link ANY C library.
"Any" would be probably too liberal, but essentially yes. There might be
some modifications that you need, to make it compatible with cgo... but I
personally haven't used cgo much, which means I can't say exactly what are
the exact boundaries.

PS. The NTRU is GPL licensed which means when you statically link to it,
you need to release your code under GPL as well. Also it contains patents.
Also, I would not be comfortable using that library, I would just use
"regular" crypto. Most likely cause for security vulnerability is
implementation details/bugs not quantum computers.
