No, the check didn't work correctly. The reason was in patch to
configure which we borrowed from Oracle (which removed
define for curl_preprocess_callconv from configure). Don't have an idea
why they do this, but this caused gethostname test program to fail.
Thanks for your assistance in finding the cause of this issue.
