Testing curl remotely

I've checked in a few changes that allow the curl test suite to run even
on machines that either don't have perl available or (like some embedded
devices) don't have the resources to run it. This is done by running the
test harness on a machine that has no problem running perl and executing
curl on the device remotely, using ssh or some other means. The files
created by curl are either stored on a shared file system accessible to
both machines (e.g. via NFS) or are synchronized some other way (e.g. rsync).

All but a dozen or so tests succeed under this setup on a basic curl
configured with crypto disabled. There are some comments at the beginning
of that describes how to configure remote testing. This might
be enough to allow testing the new OS/400 port.
