On my system its like this:
bash$ /usr/sbin/update-alternatives --display rlogin
rlogin - status is auto.
link currently points to /usr/bin/netkit-rlogin
/usr/bin/netkit-rlogin - priority 100
slave rlogin.1.gz: /usr/share/man/man1/netkit-rlogin.1.gz
Current `best' version is /usr/bin/netkit-rlogin.
