I get the same value on Debian Jessie i686, Debian Buster amd64,
Raspbian Stretch, and Debian Stretch i686, amd64, and armhf. On
another Raspbian derivative machine I get:

$ hostid


On a Slackware 14.2 i686 VM I get:

$ hostid

On a Slackware 14.2 x86_64 VM I get:

$ hostid

It looks to me as though Debian and most derivatives mostly have the
same value. Perhaps this is a value that can be set when compiling
