I'm not sure what you mean by GO clustering.  However, there are a
number of packages that will look for enriched GO terms given a set of
Gene IDs.  If you are looking for programmatic support for custom
pipelines, you can look at R/Bioconductor.

Here is a website that will look for GO enrichment and takes Flybase
IDs as the gene identifier:
