Some how you have mixed up things between base openssl and libressl, when
starting to activate libressl if you are using ports only you have to be extra
careful, (same goes with ncurses or ports openssl) just installing those ports
is enough to "pollute" nearly anything you build after with a dependency on it
(well anything that does link to libssl, libcrypto) If it very complicated and
error prone to cherry pick "only take base openssl here, only ports openssl
there" the only "safe" way to solve this situation and being consistent is to
always skip the version from base and enforce the version for ports. (the
otherway around is impossible - very complicated)

That is the price of building in place...
