No, the WITH_OPENSSL_PORT knob is a global one, and must not be used in
ports makefiles.  The fact is, there are ports using it, true, it does not
mean it is the right thing to do.

There is work going on to always use OpenSSL from ports, but it also needs
to take into account GSSAPI, and it's a mess.
