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.
