The only supported version is the last release, but due to good stability in
recent times the version before is also supported. 

However the cehck and error message comes from the makefile in the checkout,
so if it is old, it can show an outdated version.

I checked, and fixes currently tells you to use 3.0.2, but trunk has a wrong
message (shows older version in msg, but accepts 3.0.0 and 3.0.2).

I'll see if I can fix that asap.
