Note that the description below does *not* match what people were saying last week about how things work. My reading of the earlier thread was that, unless you had WITH_OPENSSL_PORT=yes in /etc/make.conf, a port needing OpenSSL would make with OpenSSL from the base.

I am not a porter and wouldn't know where to look in the code, so I can't figure out which is right. But it is clear that this is worth clarifying both in the openssl pkg-descr *and* in the make.conf man page.
