I'm still seeing failure of test 165 locally.

As for the other failures, it turns out I can only reproduce them when building
inside a clean chroot (where the Debian package was built), so I'm guessing it
could be an environment difference, or something like that.

In any case I uploaded the new curl package despite the test failures to avoid
getting caught in the freeze.

Here is the output from test 165 failing btw:
