It's in the initscripts package:
[troy@Saiph ~]
$ dpkg -S hostname.sh
initscripts: /etc/init.d/hostname.sh

$ apt-file search hostname.sh

initscripts: etc/init.d/hostname.sh

Now what is interesting, is that when i did an apt-file search the first
time, the output showed something that seemed to indicate hostname.sh was
part of sysvinit.  But when I unpacked the deb it wasn't there.  Then,
after an 'apt-file update' I get results as above.  I don't know
where/how these tools get their info -- I think I need to go read

Glad you're close to being back in action.
