FreeBSD Port: net/ssldump

When I run ssldump on my box I get:

$ ssldump -Adean -k priv.key -r test.tcpdump
ERROR: Couldn't create network handler

If I run the same command with the same set of files on an older
FreeBSD machine I get the decrypted output.

Could this be a problem with using the latest openssl?  Maybe libpcap?
