I disagree.  -J is specifying an include path, for where to search for
something.  Include directories that don't exist usually don't trigger warning
messages (like -Idir or -Ldir).  

Making it not an error is useful in that you can include a bunch of standard
locations that may or may not exist inside a build file, and a user can add an
extra location at the command line if none of the standard locations exist or
contain the file sought.

I agree with Bill's reasoning.

I will appeciate if there's a warning message with certain options on.
I find current behavior very annoying when I mistype some included path to the
compiler, and waste a lot of time on figure out why this specific file can't be
imported.

how about a waning if and only if an import fails and one of the paths is
invalid.
