LibreSSL infects ports, causes problems

It looks like our already complicated situation with base OpenSSL
and ports OpenSSL got even messier with the addition of LibreSSL.
I recently installed security/libressl for the pending net/openntpd
update (*). Now when I try to pkg delete it again, I get this:
Installed packages to be REMOVED:
Obviously LibreSSL has "infected" various other ports that happened
to be recompiled while it was installed on the system. I'm glad
that pkg(1) detects this, but the situation is certainly a surprise.
Why did I want to remove LibreSSL, you ask? Because lang/python27
also picks it up, fails to build the _ssl module due to a missing
RAND_egd(), and finally errors out on install.
*) There is an interoperability problem with LibreSSL and ca_root_nss,
which causes OpenNTPD's new https constraints feature to fail, which
is why I haven't updated the net/openntpd yet.
