In 9.x this is sometimes a problem, if port X builds in variant 1
and port Y depends/links on X, but builds in variant 2. So it's
a temporary solution for 9.x and will be solved when 9.x is EOL'ed.

I'm not sure how this is solved in 10.x/11.x, probably the base SSL
is much more up2date.

There are grey areas, and I guess it will be like that for 9.x.
