I see a whole bunch of IDN-related test failures, so I'm guessing the issues
haven't been solved:

    TESTFAIL: These test cases failed: 165 1034 1035 2046 2047

My main concern is that the Debian stretch freeze is approaching, so we risk
having curl packages with no IDN support in the next Debian release.
