How about this (or some such) change in _AC_INIT_DEFAULTS?

I surmise it isn't an issue with current systems.  At least the hostname
on mine (CentOS) returns zero.  And anything using GNU hostname is
hopefully ok.

BTW, the only reason I notice this is because I routinely grep sources
of new packages submitted to GNU for "Linux", and this always comes up :).
