	You want to know the host it was built on ? sounds like a reasonable
request to me - though it's somewhat unclear how that should be
configured / propagated from machine to machine.

	Should be an easy enough hack if someone wants to do it I guess
auto-detecting the node-name is prolly a bit nasty; but passing
something in via configure / tinbuild2 is presumably quite do-able ?
Anyone want to hack it up ?
