[help-GIFT] Avoiding "localhost" in URLs generated by gift-add-collectio

Having added one collection (from a directory below public_html) using, I noticed (only after trying access from another 
machine) that the generated URLs to the images contained "localhost" as the 
host specification, rather than the true hostname of the machine. This is a 
problem if you want to view the images over the internet.

I have just run " --help" to see if there was an option 
which would let me override this, but it appears that there is not.  
"--url-prefix" and "--thumbnail-url-prefix" sound like what is wanted, but in 
fact they are not - they don't affect the localhost issue - which I now see is 
hard-coded into (though perhaps there was an option I 
could have given to configure when I built the system?).

Anyway, I would like to suggest that a "--hostname" option be added to so that this problem could be avoided.
