I've found this sometimes happens if the port is checking for a specific 
version of a dependancy and the version you have is older. Therefore the 
dependency check fails and it tries to install, but the package manager 
won't let it because of the existing version.

You can deinstall OpenSSL_Overwrite_Base first and it will probebly work
