Tushar said it, if you reinstall coreutils you'll loose net-tools' hostname 

I noticed this same problem earlier but when I run "make check-root" that 
hostname related problem didn't seem to show up. I was in a bit of a hurry so 
I am not confident my testing was sound, some re-testing is in order.

We can extend that hostname patch though, to fix the resulting make check 

An alternate solution would be patching after we run make check to prevent the 
hostname program to be copied.
