IIRC this occurs in cases where checklink notices that access to a
resource requires authorization (HTTP status code 401).  It's just there
to give you a hint to put a "(requires authentication)" or something
like that which is visible to the end user next to the link.  checklink
doesn't understand if you happen to have such a note already in place,
so there's nothing really you can do to prevent this warning.

Suggestions how to rephrase the warning message are welcome :)
