??? If you know that the last measure is incomplete, it's obvious that you will get a bar check error if you insert a bar check there. If you really want to verify that the last measure is exactly 7/8 long (for example), you could explicitly set the measure length manually for that measure:

\relative c'{\partial 8 c8 |
c4 d e f |
\set Timing.measureLength = #(ly:make-moment 7 8) d2 c4. | \bar "|."
}

Why would you insert a bar check at a place where you know that
the measure isn't finished?
Bar checks are only intended to help you make sure that LilyPond
thinks that the measure is
finished at the same place as you think it is.

If you want an ending bar line, just use \bar "|." (or whatever
bar type you wish) but not a bar check.

A feature I would like is to make it so that barchecks don't
fail on the end of a staff started with \partial. Especially
in songs, the last measure will usually be cut down by the
same amount as the \partial at the beginning. Currently I have
to hide the time signature and change time at the end of the
staff to make it look right.

Other than that Lilypond has worked wonderfully for our
booklet we're making. Thanks!
