Thanks Tim.  Very helpful indeed!  

The following org-mode line does the job for me:

#+latex_header: \ifx\alert\undefined\let\alert\textbf\fi

If \alert is not defined, I have =alert= behave as =textbf=.
Alternatively, something like this also works:

#+latex_header: \ifx\alert\undefined\newcommand*{\alert}[1]{\textbf{#1}}\fi

in case one wants more control (e.g. could also change the colour to red).
