It is an issue, because make install is aborted by it. As I don't know 
if there are any important make steps afterwards, the best I can do is 
clear the planet cache and run make install again.

I take it, though without having tested it, that rebuilding the cache 
for installed planet packages is an optional optimization. If that is 
indeed the case, make install should not abort when an error occurs 
during rebuilding.

Possibly, but if it does, this doesn't speed up repeated make installs.
