cmd/gobind: do not compile package just to find package dir

Gobind utilizes to find
the directory of a package. Configure the load configuration
to just find the list of files. Zero load mode is equivalent
to combining NeedName+NeedFiles+NeedCompiledGoFiles bits.
That is unnecessary, and can increase the chance of load
failures. For example, load with the zero load mode may fail
if all the necessary cgo dependencies aren't available in the
system, but that shouldn't be critical for gobind's use case.

Go support for Mobile devices

Go Reference

The Go mobile repository holds packages and build tools for using Go on mobile platforms.

Package documentation as a starting point:

Caution image

The Go Mobile project is experimental. Use this at your own risk. While we are working hard to improve it, neither Google nor the Go team can provide end-user support.

This is early work and installing the build system requires Go 1.5. Follow the instructions on to install the gomobile command, build the basic and the bind example apps.

Contributions to Go are appreciated. See
