For completeness, the local customisation to let LinkPage take advantage 
of the $alt text that
MakeLink sets was equally easy. Perhaps this feature could move into the 
core at some point.
The changes to pmwiki.php are:

- add '$LinkAlt' and $alt to the str_replace arrays at the penultimate 
line of function LinkPage

- change $LinkPageExistsFmt and $LinkPageCreateFmt

At the moment, I am using a custom LinkPage function. So far, this has 
not had any side-effects
that I can detect.

Technically, the change is simple. The question is whether the markup is 

[[page name"alt text" | link text]] and [[link text -> page name"alt text"]]
look and feel acceptable to me.
