curl 7.61.0 - test 1139 fails using --without-libidn

I downloaded curl 7.61.0 today and tried to build it per the flags in my
statically linked application:

$ ./configure --without-libidn
$ make
$ make test

Test 1139 failed, so I reran it individually:

$ cd tests
$ ./ 1139

It reported:

test 1139...[Verify that all libcurl options have man pages]

"tests/log/stderr1139" had:

--disallow-username-in-url is not in curl.1 (but in tool_getparam.c
--haproxy-protocol is not in curl.1 (but in tool_getparam.c tool_help.c)

"tests/log/curlverout.log" had (transcribing manually, so no flames
about typos please):

curl 7.61.0 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu) libcurl/7.61.0 OpenSSL/1.0.1e zlib/1.2.3

"uname -a" (CentOS 6.9 in a VirtualBox VM running under Windows 10)

The "--without-libidn" flag seems to be the culprit; if I rerun the
build/test sequence with no configuration flags, test 1139 passes. I'm
not familiar with the innards of curl, so I didn't try to trace the cause.

Thanks in advance.
