I confirm that, but since they are used only for testing I don't consider that a major issue. If anyone offers a patch though I'll consider applying it.

gnutls-serv and gnutls examples seem to extensively use port 5556 which is allocated to freeciv according to IANA:

http://www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers

freeciv 5556/tcp Freeciv gameplay
freeciv 5556/udp Freeciv gameplay
# Reinier Post, Paul Zastoupil <freeciv&freeciv.org> January 2006

This causes the automated unit-tests to fail when one is running a freeciv server for example.

At first glance the affected files are:

doc/cha-programs.texi
doc/examples/ex-serv-anon.c
doc/examples/ex-serv-pgp.c
doc/examples/ex-serv-psk.c
doc/examples/ex-serv-srp.c
doc/examples/ex-serv1.c
doc/examples/tcp.c
doc/gnutls.html
doc/gnutls.ps
src/common.h
src/serv-gaa.c
src/serv.gaa
tests/anonself.c
tests/dhepskself.c
tests/openpgpself.c
tests/pskself.c
tests/resume.c
tests/x509dn.c
tests/x509self.c

(On a side note, it might also be nice to include the (new) default port in the gnutls-{serv,cli,cli-debug} manpages)
