  Why not just statically configure the hostname in radiusd.conf?

	server_hostname = ""

  And then update the code at run time, with:

	Server-Hostname = "%{config:server_hostname}"

  The configuration files are actually a list (in the lisp sense), with
nested lists, and arbitrary values.  You can put pretty much anything
you want in them, so long as it's properly formatted.
