Hey, C! What's my IP?

Is there a "standard" (de facto or otherwise) way of finding a local
machine's IP address in C?  I've googled about, but I still haven't
found what I'm looking for.  The only thing I've come up with so far is
calling gethostbyname on my machine's hostname, but that obviously won't
work when I leave my home network.

Any ideas?
