listen and ports options not working in 3.22
Hi all,

I've recently upgraded from 3.20 to 3.22 on Ubuntu. Went through the usual steps of swapping out get_iplayer and get_iplayer.cgi as I have done periodically when things break - I noticed that my cache hadn't updated in days, which prompted the upgrade.

The problem is that it (the cgi/web) won't start. I eventually tracked it down to the fact that the --listen and --port options have been removed and there is no way to pass these variables in to my (server) start script. The error from the cgi:

Unknown option: listen
Unknown option: port

I've also tried the -l and -p options (and the -g), but the -p fails at line 1834 as it thinks it is a proxy port.

I've searched around and tried a number of things, but can't get it to start. I can't even get it to start with no parameters i.e. just running a local ./get_iplayer.cgi

I'm running bionic LTS and my kernel is 4.15.0-58-generic

Hope someone can help...
