Try changing the patch to patch the src/Makefile file instead. Something like 

./configure --prefix=/usr &&
make &&
make check
patch -Np1 -i coreutils-hostname.patch &&
make install

This way when running make install the hostname and hostname.1 files won't get 
installed, which is the end result we want to accomplish.

And the patch:
