Subject: gssapi test assumes fast DNS service
The test suite doesn't wait long for the gss-server process to start
accepting connections. At IETF-60, in the hotel room with rather
mediocre network access, resolving my own hostname takes a while (and
I'm on a Mac, so no caching configured). This means the gss-server
process can take a long time to figure out its own service principal
name. By the time it does, some of the tests have already failed.

Possible fix: Very long delay before starting client processes.

Suggested fix: Have the server output a "ready" message when it's
listening for incoming connections, and have the test suite permit a
long delay for that message, but continue on as soon as the message is
