net-tools is the old networking tools package that is in the process of being deprecated by Package:Iproute2. We still need, and require these tools to set hostname. see the iproute2 page for a list of commands, and their replacements.

  • hostname - show or set the system's host name
  • dnsdomainname - show the system's DNS domain name
  • domainname - show or set the system's NIS/YP domain name
  • nisdomainname - show or set system's NIS/YP domain name
  • ypdomainname - show or set the system's NIS/YP domain name

under funtoo, /etc/conf.d/hostname controls the system hostname. /etc/conf.d/net is where your domain name is defined. /etc/hosts is where static routes and loopbacks are defined.
