Well, my answer would be that Gentoo's init subsystem isn't correctly

However, in the case of Apache there is to my knowledge no way to tell it
"use whatever hostname eth0's IP address maps to at startup". In other words
somewhere in the Apache config is a line, probably
and thats the name its always going to have.
