net/nocol compiled-in loghost

It has come to my attention that net/nocol (a monitoring package)
seems to need to compile in its loghost, and it does this by
attempting to extract a FQDN for the machine it's built on. This does
not seem like the right thing, especially for binary packages... even
if it were doing it correctly, which it isn't.


(1) unless/until anyone has any better ideas I'm going to change it to
compile in "localhost", as this will better match the apparent intent
of the circa-1998 logic choosing the FQDN.

(2) does anyone actually use this package?
