  Agreed.  I ran into this problem, I had an old ENV var LD_LIBRARY_PATH in
  one of my .tcshrc scripts that caused lighttpd to compile with the libssl
  from base but the libcrypto from the port.  Running make, then confirming
  your binary/binaries are linked correctly to the right libraries using
  'ldd' is recommended to confirm what you expect.
