go/build: deps_test.go complaining about "+build ignore" sources #12349

I have src/encoding/gob/blorp.go (dated from Apr 17) in my source tree with the following contents for some reason (probably just an artifact related to investigating a bug a while back):

// +build ignore

package main

import (

func main() {
    x := make([]int, 1000)

    var b bytes.Buffer
    if err := gob.NewEncoder(&b).Encode(x); err != nil {
    fmt.Println(hex.EncodeToString(b.Bytes())[:52] + "...")

However, updating to a34b8cb, deps_test.go is now failing for me unless I remove it:

$ go test go/build
--- FAIL: TestDependencies (0.07s)
    deps_test.go:472: unexpected dependency: encoding/gob imports [encoding/gob encoding/hex]
FAIL    go/build    0.088s

If this is working as intended, then I'm happy to just remove the culprit file. Just reporting in case the change in test behavior was not intentional.

FWIW, git bisect identified 54a966e as the CL where this behavior change happened.

Looks like deps_test.go expects a newline character before the "// +build ignore" command, presumably because proper source files in the tree should all start with license headers: 54a966e#diff-46b0925ee213530c712e3199549cae21R479

If I had a blank line to the top of blorp.go, then deps_test.go passes again. I can live with that.
