No, there is no other way. The origin of this hint comes from the fact 
that if you compile a unit with a certain define at one time, and then 
compiler another unit or program that uses this unit without using this 
specific define, you may have accidentally forgotten to specify it. In 
this case, the define is used to compile the system unit and since the 
system unit is used by all other units and programs you compile, you 
get the hint.

This is obviously not a good situation, but I think we discussed this a 
while ago (internally) and came to the conclusion that this hint should 
not be shown for units compiled in "release" mode (-Ur), such as the 
system unit. This is definitely not implemented in 1.0.6, but I don't 
know whether it's already done for 1.0.7 or 1.1
