We have the above define in mysql.cc a time ago, but the problem is
that the above will conflict with gethostname() on other systems :(
For example on Linux the prototype is:
int gethostname(char *name, size_t len);
I have now added a prototype protected by 'ifdef SOLARIS' for this.
Please mail Sun a bug report about this so that they can fix their
