How the other starting server is supposed to know whether port X is busy 
because the first server is still running or it didn't quit cleanly?

If you want to ensure that all the servers are always killed run,

% killall httpd

that's what I do.

In any case when you run a single instance of the test script, you don't 
use the -port option.
