Actually, I think this is a bad idea.  If Gentoo is requiring that the
make command succeed without errors, then the user will have to have
every optional dependency (such as the deprecated emacs-wiki.el)
installed before they can successfully build remember.  If Gentoo is
really hot and bothered about seeing errors in the Makefile, it's better
just to remove the "lisp" target from "all".
