Probably not.  The question is whether other bogus libraries were also 
added there to cause more problems later.  The pkg_which manpage has an 
example command you can run to try and track down extra files that were 
not installed by any packages.

Looks like maybe part of the OpenSSL installation was deleted (it should 
live in /usr/lib), so you should either reinstall world or install the 
openssl port.
