It's easy to forget - I've done it myself more than once. I wonder
whether, if any tests fail, we could get a reminder printed to check the
common things:

   1. Check that no other instances of bbstored or bbackupd are running
      on this machine.
   2. That there isn't a firewall blocking the incoming or outgoing
      ports that are used.
   3. That there is sufficient space in the filesystem the tests are
      being run from.

I think such a reminder would help avoid the common questions here.

Chris, if it would help I could knock up a patch for that, and add a
couple of notes to the build/test section in the wiki.
