You could run "make deinstall" from the openssl port directory, or
similar equivalent with pkg_delete.  You'd then also need to rebuild
anything linked to the openssl port.

Why bother, though?  FreeBSD isn't Windows; having multiple versions of a
shared library around is supported sanely on Unix platforms....
