BTW, I think this warning is a bad thing. Matthew Towler has reported that is
leads to build failure (see but that message
seems to have fallen through the cracks. Rene, can you comment?

I think that if we completely rebootsrap jam, then we probably should pass -a

(I recall that the whole point of complete rebootsrapping is to make sure
everything will be correctly from scratch).
