Don't worry. These are all bona-fide utilities and all that rkhunter has noticed is that they have changed at some time. This is a good place to start

You should investigate thoroughly the /var/log/rkhunter.log file and make appropriate adjustments.

It appears you haven't run
rkhunter with the --proupd option since installing it?
