To get that straight, I think a decision is needed here.

Either libressl in ports is supported, IMHO, that would mean:

* try to push necessary patches upstream
* if that's not possible, maintain them locally
* if that's not possible (e.g. because the patch is really intrusive and
  needs to change all the time), mark the port BROKEN/IGNORE with
* It's never ok to have a build failure

OR libressl is *not* supported, then I really think it should be removed
