A while ago the requirements changed somewhat in the default buildroot
set and hostname was no longer pulled in.  However it as of yet has not
seemed to cause any real problem other than the innocuous error
message you posted above.  I'm inclined to leave it this way as the
vast majority of packages (IE everything we've thrown at it so far)
builds just fine, or errors for other reasons.  If anything actually
needs that during build it should be explicitly required.
