Still haven't had any responses, I will simplify my question.

Has anybody had errors running the test suite (make test) but found that in
practice curl works fine?

Subject: Errors running test suit when building

I managed to configure and build curl OK (on two similar SuSE 7.1
intel/linux boxs with gcc 2.95.3) however I get these errors when running
the test suit. how serious are these errors. Can I ignore the errors, or
do I need to fix them. I also built it on another SuSE box that was almost
identical but I only got the error with test 15 (the only difference that I
can think of is that it had a 2.4.3 kernel instead of 2.2.16).

test 15...log/stdout15 and data/stdout15.txt differ
 data FAILEDtest 16...OK
test 101...log/generated.tmp and log/stored.tmp differ
 protocol FAILEDtest 102...OK
test 103...log/generated.tmp and log/stored.tmp differ
 protocol FAILEDtest 104...OK
test 108...log/generated.tmp and log/stored.tmp differ
 protocol FAILEDtest 109...OK

if I run tests/ -v -d it only does 15 tests (this is what I get
for test 15)

test 15...[--write-out test]

I only want to use curl with PHP (and SSL), does this mean that I will only
be using the libraries. If so, are these errors still a problem. I'm
feeling pretty ignorant at the moment, so please bear with me (normally I
would put a bit more effort in to being less ignorant, but I don't have the
time). I did also try the just released curl-7.7.3 however it tells me I
have to install stunnel to run the tests (do I also need to install stunnel
to use it?).

Here is how I built it....
 gzip -dc curl-7.7.2.tar.gz | tar xvf -
 cd curl-7.7.2
 ./configure --prefix=/opt/local/curl --with-ssl=/opt/local/ssl
 make test

(ssl is openssl-0.9.6a)

Other machine info:-
 gcc -v

 gcc version 2.95.3 20010315 (release)

Thanks to anybody that provides assistance.
