I am seeing runtime problems with asterisk13 (which I maintain), caused
by the OpenSSL update fallout.

In this case, after some analysis, I concluded the problem is the
libsrtp port requiring OpenSSL from ports(for a reason), causing
asterisk to link to that too, which would be correct.

Asterisk also uses the security/trousers port, which links to system
OpenSSL. This ensues a conflict which now results in asterisk
segfaulting and stopping to work.

I'm investigating what can be done about this. As a local solution I can
force the trousers port to link against OpenSSL from ports, but this
will not fix the general problem. As a port maintaner I ony see
modifying the trousers port to depend on ports OpenSSL as a solution, is
this acceptable?
