What did you do?

In golang.org/x/tools/gopls, do
go install .
as GOBIN is not set and GOPATH is, the output is put in $GOPATH/bin.

What did you expect to see?

I expected it to warn me that I would not find the new executable in my PATH.

What did you see instead?

silence. I know this is my misconfiguration, but a little help would have been nice.
