Adding the user-specified hostname to the 127.0.0.1 line is breaking

Can you try booting a system with the hostname set to something which
is unresolvable and see if httpd and/or sendmail hang/take forever on
startup?  I think those were the main things which were unhappy at one
point with not being able to resolve the hostname.

Looks like those hangs are finally gone.  Both sendmail and httpd start up
just fine with the /etc/hosts file as provided by the setup RPM and hostname
set to 'unreachablehost' (which is not configured on my LAN to resolve to
anything).

Hooray!  And some of the last vestiges of severe "WTF" inspiring code
can go away.

Thanks for double-checking it

It is always nice to see minus signs in patches.
