[patch] HOST_NAME_MAX not defined

  It seems HOST_NAME_MAX is not defined on my system (debian unstable). 
  According to the gethostname manpage:
    SUSv2 guarantees that `Host names are limited  to  255  bytes'.  POSIX
    1003.1-2001  guarantees that `Host names (not including the terminating
    NUL) are limited to HOST_NAME_MAX bytes'.

  So setting HOST_NAME_MAX to 256 in case it's undefined is ok I guess. Patch 
  attached to do this.

Nature is by and large to be found out of doors, a location where,
it cannot be argued, there are never enough comfortable chairs.
