make config changes my hostname

After doing a 'make config' my hostname changes to "-d". Doing a
'hostname lonestar' returns it to normal. I am not sure when this
started happening but it has been happening for a while, but I think only
during the 1.3 series.

I am running a very old setup, hmm... it might still be a SLS
distribution or this setup might be one of the first Slackwares.

Any ideas as to what is happening? If you do, please let me know.
