According to my man-pages; gethostname() should be in the BSD compatibility lib,
it says a few nasty things, like;

     Use of these interfaces should be restricted to only  appli-
     cations  written  on BSD platforms.  Use of these interfaces
     with any of the system libraries or in multi-thread applica-
     tions is unsupported.

and so on. But it really ought to be OK, as it is in the compat lib.


DISCLAIMER: My manpages are known to be a combination of utrix/osf/solaris
and god knows what else. So if the above is correct, well lucky you !
