The inetutils package is not in the base set of Arch Linux and the hostname command is not available by default on a minimal system. pkgtools/pkg_chk

The patch provided fixes the issue by adding net/inetutils as a dependency if OPSYS is Arch. It works but there maybe is a more elegant/general way to solve it. I prefer requesting the opinion of the maintainer before savagely

Would it not be simpler to just call $(uname -n) instead?

Yes, /usr/bin/uname is in coreutils which is required by both base package set and linux.

No counter-argument to use $(uname -n) instead of $(hostname)?
