Here is the easiest way i found to install Pound on FreeBSD (6.4 amd64).

- install OpenSSL from /usr/ports/security/openssl
- in /usr/local/openssl add a link to /usr/local/include and /usr/local/lib
- modify /usr/ports/www/pound/Makefile and add a line saying:
  CONFIGURE_ARGS+=        --with-ssl=/usr/local/openssl
- install Pound from /usr/ports/www/pound/

The modification to the Makefile will have to be done after every
upgrade of the ports tree; before upgrading Pound.

Best regards,
