I replied privately, but I can't replicate this on the OS X that I have
available (19.4.0) and I suspect that his might be a collision between
the ports used in the test and something listening on locally. The
relevant section of your log seems consistent with this.

You should be able to override the default port number using
$TEST_SSH_PORT, e.g. "make tests TEST_SSH_PORT=23456"
