Well, I tried to make it a hard error, so that it would be the only
output, but others on the list convinced me to reduce it back to a
warning.  I don't know of any GNU make construct to make it appear last.
Maybe we just insert a sleep 10 after printing the warning, so that the
interactive user has time to notice the message and Ctrl-C the build,
while an unattended install eventually proceeds?
