I replicated the warning after the module list.
How about that ?

I don't really understand how moving the text would help the situation at all - in fact, if the reasons for moving it are because you *can't* scroll up, then I could see this as being harmful.
Let's assume that you are able to see 16 lines on your screen. The warning itself takes up 11 of those lines, leaving 5 lines for modules. Let's say you have 10 modules that weren't compiled with Asterisk... if you move the warning text to below the modules, you can no longer see some of the modules. That's bad.
If the reason for this is just because people don't know that they need to scroll up to see it, I think the "WARNING WARNING WARNING" at the end serves as a pretty good indicator..
Closing. Reopen if you think you can convince me.
