 The default for net-mgmt/nrpe2 is to be compiled without SSL support.   
 This results in both nrpe2 and check_nrpe2 being unable to support SSL  
 connections or services, and thus non-SSL becomes the default  
 connection method.  If the port is built with SSL support, nrpe2  
 supports only SSL connections but check_nrpe2 supports both with the  
 default being SSL.  You may then use the -n flag from the command line  
 to connect to hosts without the SSL binary.
 I have tested the differences between the builds and am unable to find  
 any issues short of attempting to connect a non-SSL check_nrpe2 to an  
 SSL only nrpe2 but the error is clear and handled correctly.  If you  
 can provide more details, I am happy to investigate, however I am  
 slightly lost at your comment regarding the default for check_nrpe2  
 being SSL enabled, it isn't.
 Does your current /etc/make.conf contain WITH_SSL=yes?
