I can't either. Besides, it would be really bizarre to prefer a non-standard
call like sysinfo() to a standard one like gethostname(). That would require
patching not only mysqld.cc, but *any* program that uses gethostname(), which
would be an insane incompatibility for Sun to introduce.
I'm also curious about it not being in the Solaris libraries. This is what
I get on my Solaris 2.7 system:
% cd /usr/lib
% ar t libc.a | grep gethostname
