I don't know for sure, but I imagine this warning is for"old users" that 
have been using RTools for some of their packages and need to know that 
the old RTools no longer works with the latest builds.  It certainly was 
helpful to me.  I understand how frightening it could be to new users, 
but everyone should benefit from learning the difference between a 
warning and an error at some time.
