Maybe remove the existing package first? And try to use a pkg if you
can for the new one.

Subject: How do I replace the built-in OpenSSL with a source tarball ?
I would like to:
- upgrade the built-in OpenSSL that comes with FreeBSD (in my case,
- replace it with OpenSSL that I build myself from the source tarball
If I do this with a plain old: ./config ; make ; make install
OpenSSL does indeed build and install, but it installs in an alternate
location and does not overwrite the FreeBSD built-in.
Ok, should be easy to fix - I will simply use an:
config directive and point it to /usr:
However, that does not work - running:
shows me that this binary has not changed. Ok, no problem, I will
instead ... but that also does not work.
No matter what I do, I cannot get the OpenSSL source tarball to
overwrite my built-in OpenSSL in FreeBSD - I always end up having two
binaries in two different locations.
Can someone tell me how to just cleanly replace the built-in OpenSSL
with the source tarball ?
