	I'll toss in my two cents here just FWIW.  I had troubles 
	with all sorts of sh* (stuff) breaking when I touched openssl.

	I had not---or maybe I did, inadvertently--used the openssl
	"port".  I *had* to use /usr/src/secure/openssl/<<whatever>>;
	when applications began breaking.  I pkg_deleted openssl
	and rebuilt the native /usr/src/* stuff.  These apps are
	tightly interdependent; that's why you are seeing things

	This may or may not work generally.  It cost me at least 
	a day's investigation ... and I'm  *still* not sure that
	everything's right.
