No, actually, that's exactly what it should do.  If I install OpenSSL 
from ports and set WITH_OPENSSL_PORT in /etc/make.conf, the express 
intent is to require all OpenSSL-using ports to link to the ports version.

Nginx with SPDY needs NPN, which means OpenSSL 1.0.1 or later.  Thus for 
9.x and earlier we need to set WITH_OPENSSL_PORT.  For 10.0 and later, 
both versions will work, so the correct behaviour for nginx is to say it 
does not specifically require either by not setting either 
WITH_OPENSSL_* variable.
