go/build: Build API #6920

Proposal: Add a build API for building Go program in go/build.

Context: `go build` and `go test` use an internal build API to build a Go program
( It'd be nice that the API is available to
third party software as well. Google Group discussion is here

Use Case: `gotask` ( adopts similar approach as `go
test` to write and run task functions. Similar to how `go test` compiles and run test
functions, `gotask` compiles task functions on the fly and run them. The difference is
`go test` uses an internal build API ( while
`gotask` uses the `go build` command. I'm wondering if it makes sense to add a new build
API for building Go program in go/build so that 3rd party software can make use of.
