host unknown

While installing octave on a machine with Celeron cpu, ./configure aborts
with "Host name unknown, you must specify one".

uname -a => i686
$HOSTTYPE => i386

Is this the problem?

I've installed the same octave-2.0.13 on other machines, same Linux
distribution (RH5.2) without problem.  In those cases
uname -a => i586
$HOSTTYPE => i386

Are there real differences for octave to run on these machines or are they
just convenient name tags?  Where should I specify?  It's not in INSTALL.
