It's only a warning, not an error. The $AppType directive is only handled
on targets that have a distinction
for binary types (e.g. Windows which has GUI and Console or Classic Mac OS
which has Tool). Unix-like systems like Linux do not differ between console
and GUI programs in that way and thus the directive is ignored(!) there.
