First off, thanks for taking the time to reply :-)
I am afraid however, that you have completely lost me.
This is not the first time I have installed a port, and the reccommendation
to use 'FORCE_PACKAGE_REGISTER" has been seen. Unfortunately, I have no idea
what port you guys are suggesting is really broken, is it the
OpenSSL_Overwrite_Base or the one I am trying to install?
If it is the OpenSSL one, can you explain in simple terms how I should deal
