Hi Gerry,
--server option overrides --spec-file to fetch the spec file from the
server instead. Also --port requires --server.

I fixed it to behave as you expected. Now glusterfs client will error
out with an appropriate message for the following cases:
 * if you combine --spec-file and --server
 * if you pass --port and not --server

Thanks for reporting. Fix is in GNU TLA archive.
