I did this

Look at any CI build. Alternatively, run the tests with

I expected the following

Not to see this line in every single test suite run:

TESTINFO: "Test requires default test server host and port" 12 times (842, 843, 844, 845, 887, 888, 889, 890, 946 and 3 more)

Could it be that these tests cannot be run at all anymore since 80d6515?

Also, there are a lot of warnings

Use of uninitialized value $HTTPSPORT in substitution (s///) at /tests/ line 3271."

as visible e.g. in, which seems to be caused by the same commit.

curl/libcurl version

Correct, tests that require "default host and port" can no longer run (unless by a fluke the random port happens to land on the single port the test can run on). They need to be adjusted to work on "any" port number.

@jay surely that's a separate problem?

This allows us to make test cases to use base64 at run-time and still
use and verify information determined at run-time, such as the IMAP test
server's port number in test 842. is adjusted to load test instructions and test number from
the preprocessed test file. now documents the new base64 encoding syntax.
