I can will remove the makefile change then.

The warning is going the same place as the help output (Log.info()) 
which is stdout unless a different stream is passed to ToolProvider.

So if we want a more detailed message in Help text we can either show 
the more detailed message in addition to the message shown in all cases, 
or specifically exclude the generic message in the Help case.
