getting rid of openssl port

Some of my machines were running RELENG_4_7 when I installed ports 
such as apache13_modssl and cyrus-imapd on them. Since that version
of FreeBSD had OpenSSL 0.9.6 in the base system and these ports required
0.9.7, I ended up with openssl port installed on these systems.

Now that I'm upgrading to RELENG_4_8, which includes OpenSSL 0.9.7, I want to
get rid of the port. It would just feel cleaner to not have multiple versions 
of same libraries in /usr/lib and /usr/local/lib.

What is the easiest way to get rid of OpenSSL port? Do I need to remove everything
that depends on openssl port, remove the port and then reinstall everything?
Or is there a less painful way? Actually "everything" is not that much in my case,
it really is just apache13-modssl port on one machine and cyrus-imapd port on the
other machine, but it still implies *some* downtime of HTTPD and IMAP server.
