Problems with SSL after upgrade from 4.7 to 4-Stable

Greetings Everyone,

Have a problem that has been nagging me for about two weeks, recently I had to
upgrade one of my mail servers from 4.7 to 4-STABLE.  All associated ports on
the box were all upgraded also, before the change and also after, all were
recompiled to make sure that they would not have any problems.  Well, ended up
with one problem where openssl from ports keeps core dumping on anything that
depends on it.  But I can do /usr/local/bin/openssl and it seems to run fine.
 And so does the base openssl also.  Right now it's been perplexing me, I
can't even load webmin with SSL support with perl dumping core.  Or if I
compile apache with ssl or even if i do and just force it to run without it
work fine, but as soon as I start it with ssl it core dumps also.  I have been
going though all the librarys in the base system and have many time removed
and reinstalled the ports openssl, after with I rebuilt all associated ports
and the problem still persists.  I have lots of .core files i have even tried
to do back traces on and it doesn't seem to make any sense.  Of all the years
I have been using FreeBSD this is the first time that I have had a problem
like this with openssl core dumping all the time.  And help or suggestions
would be aprechiated.

Thanks in advance,
