ip6-localhost seems to be the standard name--why is SuSE doing something
different? I don't see how that could be the cause of a test 252 failure
since that test doesn't refer to ip6-localhost.

testcurl does a buildconf early on in the source tree (it has to do
it there), which will create some local files, but they ought to be in
.cvsignore already. Maybe newer autotools create new files that need to
be added. Which ones are showing up?
