genid.c in lib.  It looks like it calls GetFQDN(), which of course just
calls gethostname() or gethostbyname() to get the machine's canonical

I wonder if it would make sense to use pathhost instead, or if we should
add an additional inn.conf parameter for this, like hostname, that would
be returned by GetFQDN() rather than trying lookups.
