Isn't it obvious? Release Alt-Ergo 0.92 appeared recently, while current 
Why version 2.26 was released on May. How could we know in May that 
release 0.92 will come, and how could we know in advance that it would 
work? Same messages can pop up with other external prover too, of course.

This warning will disappear in next Why release. And it is just a warning.

There is a known bug with Why versions <= 2.26 and Alt-Ergo 0.91. So I 
do not recommended to package Alt-Ergo 0.91.
Apart from that every combination should be safe.

Finally, notice that  Why 2.27 release, compatible with Alt-Ergo 0.9, 
0.91 and 0.92 is scheduled for december, if it helps.
