it is the shellscript tests/openpgp-certs/testcerts

It is starting a listening daemon on Then a client is
connecting to the server on "localhost", and
The point of the exercise is certificate verification, the cert used
is limited to "".

I am aware that e.g. in linux vserver is not useable
( is the loopback address of the host system, and
therefore a daemon running in the vserver cannot bind to it.), but
I thought this was not a limitation of our buildd network.

Anyway, since gnutls-cli's exitcode is 1 both for verification failed
and connection refused, I do not see a better alternative than
disabling this test on the buildds.

(This is a slightly older version of the script. The version in 2.3.14
is functionally identical, except for using port 5557 instead of 5556.
No idea why git*web* is out of date, the git repo itself is ok.)
