I've done this before and it is pretty painless, only a small number of
files.  I think this is it (on my system at least):

- /etc/hostname, /etc/hosts, /etc/mailname, 
- probably some of your mail config files (I use smail, so
- others, depending upon your installation: apache, etc.

My approach would be to use a recursive grep on /etc to find these.  I
think there is a recursive grep in the 'git' package, I think the
application is 'gitrgrep'.  

Hope this helps...
