It was the closest thing to openssl. There is what I think is a problem
with ports such as openssl. It is in the makefile to portupgrade but if
you do a make search, it doesn't show up. When you see an obvious link
problem like you saw, check if you have it installed. If you do/don't
just upgrade/install what is missing.
