Hey all!

If I look at base openssl in 7.3-RELEASE-p3

sys# openssl version -a
OpenSSL 0.9.8e 23 Feb 2007
built on: Mon Sep 27 11:54:36 MSD 2010
platform: FreeBSD-i386
options:  bn(64,32) md2(int) rc4(idx,int) des(ptr,risc1,16,long) blowfish(idx)
compiler: cc
OPENSSLDIR: "/etc/ssl"

but at I see that it's not recent version

01-Jun-2010:	   OpenSSL 0.9.8o is now available, including important
bug and security fixes

I know that freebsd security team make patches for base openssl, but
how can I know what patchlevel of openssl in base version?

Like "-p5" in "OpenSSL 0.9.8e-p5 23 Feb 2007".
