I don't have the source to 3.8.0, but the problem is in that line
above.  Feel free to UTSL and find out where it occurs.  ;)
It looks like some library call used to return your host name
before and it doesn't now (assuming fetchmail stopped working
after you upgraded some other packages, like it did here).

Anyway, new versions of fetchmail require that you explicitly
specify the host to deliver to, so you might as well start getting
used to it.  ;)
