   I agree, it's much simpler (IMHO) to upgrade OpenSSL installed from port 
than to patch one in base. Just be aware that bugs can be met with on this 
path - just like ports/138466 (affects www/apache22 built 
WITH_OPENSSL_PORT=yes). It is critical to make sure that right runtime 
libraries (those from /usr/local/lib, not from the base) are used by _every_ 
application built WITH_OPENSSL_PORT=YES - and it's not always true ;(
