Fails to build if GOPATH is set in parent shell #4

biscuit/GNUmakefile has GOPATH ?= $(shell pwd) which only sets GOPATH if it's not already set. If the user has GOPATH set to any value that doesn't include the current directory as an element, the build fails:

~/src/biscuit/biscuit$ rm -f mkfs; GOPATH=/whatever make qemu CPUS=2
GOPATH="/whatever" ../bin/go build src/mkfs/mkfs.go
src/mkfs/mkfs.go:8:8: cannot find package "fs" in any of:
	/home/tv/src/biscuit/src/fs (from $GOROOT)
	/whatever/src/fs (from $GOPATH)
src/mkfs/mkfs.go:9:8: cannot find package "ufs" in any of:
	/home/tv/src/biscuit/src/ufs (from $GOROOT)
	/whatever/src/ufs (from $GOPATH)
src/mkfs/mkfs.go:10:8: cannot find package "ustr" in any of:
	/home/tv/src/biscuit/src/ustr (from $GOROOT)
	/whatever/src/ustr (from $GOPATH)
GNUmakefile:119: recipe for target 'mkfs' failed
make: *** [mkfs] Error 1

I'd prefer the build to fail rather than having the makefile fiddle with or override the user's GOPATH. I've updated the to include to some hints.
