Expected output: The build should fail and the .app should not be generated.

The same behavior applies to -target=android as well, the apk is generated even though gomobile build fails with:

gomobile: does not import ""

I am not sure what is the intention behind the current behavior, we can always delete the intermediate app and apk files if x/mobile/app import condition fails. Currently, the error message reads as it is a warning but gomobile build exits with an error.
