cave owner should print something useful about alternatives symlinks, not nothing

Description

Alright, so alternatives symlinks arguably aren't owned by a single package, but cave owner could at least print to stderr:

warning: /usr/bin/haddock is not owned by any package
However, it appears to be an alternatives symlink - try using $BLAH to find out more

rather than the current output (nothing), which makes you think it's some rogue non-paludis install!

  • Status changed from new to closed

Don't think that can be done, short of requiring alternatives to register everything somewhere...
