There were (maybe still are) a few ports that don't work correctly with
openssl via ports; however, I have filed PRs on them and for the most
part they have been fixed. However, I would not let that fact deter
you from using a newer, safer version of the application.
When building a new system, I start with the newer version from the
start. If updating later, I have found that first installing the new
openssl version via ports, and then using portmanager with the "-p"
option rebuilds virtually any port still dependent on the deprecated
version. In any case, I believe it is a prerequisite to have the
previously noted notation in the "/etc/make.conf" file prior to building
any port(s) or kernel/world.
In jedem Falle jedoch zu seinem eigenen.
