Dear Marek,

Thanks for your report.  As for the "test_options" failure, I wonder
what happens on Solaris 10 if you "bind()" a socket to the port 0.
Given the error message, it seems that the semantics are different from
those on other platforms: on GNU/Linux, bind()ing to 0 means "pick a
random free port".  If on Solaris this is simply illegal, that would
explain the test failure.

I don't have a Solaris 10 box. Can you confirm this is the case? If so,
we need to document this limitation on Solaris (bind-to-random-port not
supported) and modify the test to "skip" that check.

Happy hacking!
