and followups

i haven't used my module on a mac since then, but i now want to do so.
 fyi, my solution:  create /usr/local/bin/hostid, which contains:


    export PATH=/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin

    ifconfig en0 | grep ether | awk '{ print $2 }' | sed 's/://g'

i want a hostid because there's a routine in my module which sends
email, and i add an 'X-Hostid' header to each message.
