We're not talking about builds, but other processing of the 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 
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
