Hi Tim,

Yes, that is an eventuality I did not consider when writing this test. A
user configured option that may override the settings intended for the
test. Maybe we should have a --no-config option to ensure that the tests
are run on the compiled defaults only.

Having a uniform environment for tests is a must. I've attached a patch
that introduces --no-config. However this is not yet complete and ready for
merging. Most importantly, if accepted, I need to change a few comments and
edit wget.texi explaining the new option.

In case both the --config and --no-config commands are issued, the one that
appears first on the command will be considered and the other ignored.
