  icomment:  Emiliano reported in the chat a test failure on netbsd of http-4.16
             (introduced by [8d81ec63d5d] but incorrectly called http-1.15).

             I can't see how it's failing, but in any case the test doesn't do what
             it says on the tin: -headers {X-Connection keep-alive} just gets
             echoed back by tests/httpd (with "X-" intact), and in any case it
             closes the socket immediately.

             Test httpd-4.16 is useless, and I suggest simply removing it - the
             alternative is to rework tests/httpd to support keepalive, which is
             both more effort and liable to cause more rework.
