During an execd installation, step "Checking hostname resolving", the
installation produces a warning that the host, on which the execd is to be
installed, is not known as an administrative host:

This hostname is not known at qmaster as an administrative host.

However, the host is already part of the administrative host list (qconf -sh).
The hostname in this administrative host list contains uppercase letters. It is
reported exactly the same way (including the uppercase letters) by
'$SGE_UTILBIN/gethostname -aname'. Nevertheless, the installation procedure does
not recognize that the names are the same.

This happens in a system that uses FQDN with no default domain.

Suggested Fix
In util/install_modules/, line 285, the same tr command as in line
282 should be used on the hostname.
