The default setting for the SSL option is OFF, which means the binary packages are built without SSL.  As the default for the check_nrpe2 Nagios plugin is to use SSL (SSL can be disabled with the -n option), I believe the default for the NRPE server (i.e. this port) should also be to enable SSL.
Install the net-mgmt/nrpe2 port with default options or install the binary package from a mirror.  Attempt to run the check_nrpe2 plugin and watch it fail unless you specify the -n option to disable SSL.
Set the option to default to on like this:

(I also bumped PORTREVISION; not sure about the policy on that.)
