$ cat a.go
package p

import "missing"

$ command go version
go version devel +4da84adc0c Mon Jul 9 19:35:21 2018 +0000 linux/amd64
$ command go list -export -e  a.go
go build missing: no Go files in 

I expect the fix is something like this:

--- a/src/cmd/go/internal/load/pkg.go
+++ b/src/cmd/go/internal/load/pkg.go
@@ -185,6 +185,9 @@ func (e *NoGoError) Error() string {

                return "no non-test Go files in " + e.Package.Dir
+       if e.Package.Dir == "" {
