I've not had a chance to investigate properly, but it makes sense that
building the docs doesn't work properly in a place that isn't known by
setup-plt and that is what seems to be happening when planet create
runs. In any case, I certainly hope that the answer is "no" to your
question of 'does the user have to make sure the .zo files are up to
date before running planet create?'.
