All in pseudo code, because I'm not doing your work for you.

// Populate the array..
$hosts = array();
foreach (line in file) {
   // Put code to grab bug numbers up here...

   // Once you get to the host name lines...
   $hosts[$name][] = $bug_id;
}

Now you'll have an array like this:

$hosts = array(
    1234 => array(
       'somehost1',
       'somehost2.example.com',
       'somehostwehanvenotseeninyears.example.com',
    ),
    3456 => array(
       'somehost1',
       'somehostwehanvenotseeninyears.example.com',
    ),
);

Finally, you can loop over $hosts and implode, as per someone else's 
posting upstream in this thread.
