We're not talking about builds, but other processing of the
bsd.openssl.mk such as for 'make describe'. I don't see why
NOPRECIOUSMAKEVARS should be relevant for that since it's not invoking
further child makes.
To repeat, why can't you set the openssl variables in bsd.port.subdir.mk
and pass them in to the port-level make process instead of recomputing
them with every port?
P.S. I am not sure that same limit still exists in supported versions anyway
