See the comments in the PR at
It appears that on certain hardware compiling openssl 1.0.2 with the ASM
optimisations turned on, which is the default, can cause all sorts of
strange issues. I had the same issues with vi, bash, and all sorts of
things both in the base system and the ports system. I have no idea why
or how. But disabling ASM and recompiling it works around the issue.
It seems to completely corrupt the environment.
