Bug#435699: live-helper: Messing up build host hostname during build
> it's a workaround to the broken ssmtp postinst on etch/powerpc.
Why is it enabled on non-ppc archs and when ssmtp isn't installed?

It broke munin via sitesummary for skolelinux.org, so it is a
workaround with ugly side effects.
Will it work to replace the hostname binary in the chroot while the
packages are installed to avoid this problem? I have not looked in
the postinst script.
