I prefer having it show up on the same port by default (I tend to run
so many versions of CouchDB that trying to formalize alternate ports
would be impractical). Note that you only need to set local_dev.ini's
port once, and that it won't be changed during the ./configure make

Perhaps the best way to channel this energy would be in better error
handling and messages when CouchDB encounters a problem on booting.
