Build the ports with -DOPENxxx_OVERWRITE_BASE or, if you use portupgrade,
better put the following lines in your /usr/local/etc/pkgtools.conf
MAKE_ARGS section:

      'security/openssl*' => '-DOPENSSL_OVERWRITE_BASE',
      'security/openssh*' => '-DOPENSSH_OVERWRITE_BASE',

Then you must remember to use -DNO_OPENSSL and -DNO_OPENSSH when running
'make installworld' (I advice against using the flags during buildworld, it
gave me some problems at times)
