I have never tried this with OpenSSL so I can't be certain (I just use
base openssl) but as long as the libraries are already open, deleting
them should be ok since the open file handle will remain valid.
Starting a new SSH connection may not work between the deinstall and
install step, and apache may get upset if it happens to fork a new
process in that time, but overall it should be ok,
You'll want to restart sshd and apache after the install is done so they
puck up the new version.
If you are worried about getting disconnected between the 2 steps run
them as a single command "make deinstall; make install" inside screen
(ports/sysutils/screen) or something so it will run to completion even
if you get disconnected.
