A very good catch! I'll have to change this back to depending on both
net-tools and iproute2.

We were hoping to move hostname to coreutils (and domainname to
yp-tools), but that hasn't happened yet, so we still need net-tools.
Thanks for pointing it out.

Allan: any thoughts on moving hostname from net-tools to coreutils?
