FreeBSD 6.3-RELEASE installing php-imap

Hi all,

I have a script that required php-imap extension installed but I keep 
running into a 2 snags when 'making' the port (mail/php-imap)...

First, I have to use the -DFORCE_PKG_REGISTER so openssl_overwtite_base 
won't kill the make, which seems to work,

and, most importantly,

when the mail/imap-php port tried to actually do the build of the imap part, 
it says it can't find (OpenSSLs) 'evp.h' file. I assume it is just failing 
on the first file it can't find.

So, I guess the question is, when making the mail/imap-php port, is there a 
way to pass the path for the OpenSSL libraries? My libs appear to be in two 

server# locate evp.h

If I can pass the path, I assume I should use the /usr/include dir, but how?

make -D"--with-openssl=/usr/include/openssl"  ???
