devel/tcl-trf : -lmd vs. -lcrypto

When I first made the port years ago, OpenSSL was an optional component,
so I went through some trouble to ensure using FreeBSD's -lmd.

However, OpenSSL is standard now and, importantly, some of its routines
are hand-optimized to be quicker than the same functions in -lmd.

Should I modify the port to use OpenSSL's -lcrypto instead of -lmd?

Thanks for suggestions!
