You are right that it no longer should be unconditional, but not that
it should be removed altogether.  Remember, although you may be
running a recent version of 8-stable, with openssl 0.9.8n, others may
still be using older, but still supported, versions of the FreeBSD,
with older base system openssl.

And, as far as I know, openssl 1.0 is _not_ in the base system, even
in -CURRENT.  We are still at 0.9.8n.

Anyway, I think Martin planned to fix this, now that __FreeBSD_version
has been bumped after some recent changes.
