I disagree, never having had a problem with OPENSSL_OVERWRITE_BASE.

That would be a version mis-match, not really related to overwriting
the base port. Indeed if you install openssl without
OPENSSL_OVERWRITE_BASE you will have two different versions on your
your system, which is much more of a sysadmin headache than an easily
diagnosed version mismatch. For the same reason I recommend
OPENSSH_OVERWRITE_BASE, NO_MAILWRAPPER, NO_SENDMAIL, NO_OPENSSH,
NO_OPENSSL, NO_BIND, and PORT_REPLACES_BASE_BIND8 or
PORT_REPLACES_BASE_BIND9 as well.
OPENSSL_OVERWRITE_BASE should be the default, but consider adding
WITH_OPENSSL_097 to prevent automatic incompatible version upgrades.
Most of the sites I consult with have stuck with the 0.9.7 branch for
Is it still the case that 'make *world' cannot parse
OPENSSL_OVERWRITE_BASE and requires NO_OPENSSL instead?
