for Linux, we'll be transitioning the hostname init.d script to /etc/hostname
and having the rc binary reading that and calling sethostname() itself. i
think the init.d script will stick around for a while as `hostname` should be
a bit more portable than sethostname() ... at least, it'll be a safety net for
people to fallback onto.
