I did a portupgrade on a system with openssh from ports and replace_base ssh enabled.
Upon start it said
Could not load host key: /etc/ssh/ssh_host_ecdsa_key
This file is expected by the /etc/ssh/sshd_config from the port.
Install older version of openssh from ports and replace base
then upgrade to 5.3+ openssh.
Normally FreeBSD builds the keys at start of the init script.
A fix will probably have to worry about replacing /etc/rc.d/ssh.
