Can't find imports via GOPATH

Bug Description

go run does work on GO1.02, with one flaw. It cannot find import packages in the GOPATH. For example if I have my GOPATH set to the following : $HOME/gocode. gocode contains the 'bin' , 'pkg' and 'src'. my imports reside in 'pkg/darwin_amd64'. Such an import is ''. This pkg cannot be found unless I place it in the directory - go/pkg/darwin_amd64/.

In summary, it appears go run does not search in the GOPATH for imports.

Indeed, sorry about that. I should have worked on that already.

I expect this this problem with go run is not on the top of your priority list at this time, however since I use TextWrangler for most of my work with "GO", I check the status of "go run" everyday. If I can be of help resolving this problem let me know. I have tried to correct this problem on may own, but do not know where to start.

My workaround is using `go run` instead of `gorun`: `go run` isn't affected by this bug, no idea why

I'd love to see this one corrected as well. Using 'go run' has been my workaround as well but it's clumsy workaround.
