I'd vote for keeping the --temp-port option but not having the Makefile
use it. Seems like it'd still be potentially useful for hand use of
Also, like Alvaro I'm thinking that a retry is really needed. As this
patch stands you'd be vulnerable to random, unrepeatable failures
anytime you picked a port that happened to be in use for something else.
