How do I get the syslog messages to output the FQDN in the message?

Sudo doesn't add the hostname itself, that is done by syslog itself.
The BSD syslogd does a gethostname(2) and the strips off anything
after the first dot.  I really don't see a good way to fix this for
you short of modifying syslog, or adding another field in the sudo
log line (HOST=foo like for the file-based logging).
