libimobiledevice, ssl and "Failed to connect to lockdownd service on the device"

I'm trying to mount my iPhone (SE) with fuse to copy all photos and videos 
to my FreeBSD machine. Installed sysutils/fusefs-ifuse and started usbmuxd 
(when the phone is unlocked, as instructed). All daemons run as expected 
etc., but running "ifuse -o allow_other /mnt/iphone" results in an error: 
"Failed to connect to lockdownd service on the device".

After some searching it seems that libimobiledevice should be build with 
OpenSSL instead of GnuTLS. But in the ports this is not a buildoption.

So is it possible to build libimobiledevice with OpenSSL? Or does anyone 
know if there is something else going on?


The value of a program is proportional to the weight of its output.
