Dear all,

This upgrade intends to fix the regression of coreutils' hostname not
being as featureful as net-tools'.

- coreutils: revert to not building hostname
- net-tools: revert to building hostname and dnsdomainname
- initscripts: set hostname via /proc (does not use any binary)
- initscripts: remove superfluous dollar sign

Note that ypdomainname and nisdomainname are still provided by yp-tools.

Please test and signoff.
