Strange. If I pass the service name in the --initscript argument to  
alternatives, I get some kind of a whine:

# /usr/sbin/alternatives --install /usr/sbin/sendmail mta /usr/lib/courier/bin/sendmail 91 \
    --slave /usr/bin/mailq mta-mailq /usr/lib/courier/bin/mailq \
    --slave /usr/bin/rmail mta-rmail /usr/lib/courier/bin/rmail \
    --slave /usr/bin/newaliases mta-newaliases \
         /usr/lib/courier/sbin/makealiases \
    --initscript courier
error reading information on service courier: No such file or directory

Yet, "chkconfig courier on" works, so the breakage is between alternatives  
and chkconfig.
