[ 53s] rubygem-rake.i586: W: generic-name-not-marked-as-ghost /usr/bin/rake
[ 53s] The update-alternatives generic name is not marked as a ghost in the
[ 53s] section. This causes problems during update. Mark it as a %ghost in
[ 53s] section.

The thing is: this is exactly as describes
it and how it should be.

If /usr/bin/rake is a %ghost, then an update from /usr/bin/rake the file to
/usr/bin/rake the link to /etc/alternatives/rake is ignored.

The test should actually check that /usr/bin/rake is _not_ %ghost *and* links
to an empty file in /etc/alternatives
