I added it manually (using vi), and the message went away.  Wonderful.

Then, for further testing, I removed that line again, and the message
did not come back.  Is the code checking the date of the .mh_profile?

It does NOT contain a Version component:

    $ cat `mhparam path`/`mhparam context`
    Current-Folder: inbox

I do not: 

    $ echo $MHCONTEXT

Thank you already for your help!  Should I add the version to the
