[gnutls-devel] gnutls-cli --dane vs --port names

I just noticed that, when gnutls-cli is called with --dane and --port,
using a port name rather than a port number, even though it resolves
the port to a number for the socket, it fails to snprintf(3) that for
creating the tlsa lookup.

Eg, <gnutls-cli --port 465 --dane mx.example.org> works find, but the
equivilent <gnutls-cli --port smtps --dane mx.example.org> fails.

The connect(2) of course works fine, only the tlsa lookup is affected.
