Subject: hostname is using a case sensitive search in function name_from_hosts

I discovered that the function name_from_hosts parses the /etc/hosts
file and does a case sensitive search for a name.
Sometimes I encounter mixed upper and lowercase hostnames in a /etc/hosts file.
It would be easier if the function searches for the name in a case
insensitive way....

By changing line 68  in src/network/lookup_name.c
       for(p=line+1; (p=strstr(p, name)) &&
       for(p=line+1; (p=strcasestr(p, name)) &&

That would resolve the problem.
