[gnutls-devel] Parallel test bug in gnutls-3.2.2

Dear GnuTLS folks,

In 3.2.2, there are a bunch of tests that all try to listen on the same
TCP port -- grepping for PORT in tests/*.c will find several of these.
The problem with this is that if you try to run the test suite in
parallel (e.g. make -j8 check), a random subset of them will fail
because one of the other tests already has the port bound...

I guess allocating each test a different port number would be a simple
fix for this.
