Installing openssl from ports

The port is newer than the base version:
port is 1.0.1_8 and the base is 0.9.2

Both openssl and heimdal install fine from the base system src,
it's only when I try to install openssl from the ports, with heimdal
installed by the base system that I get the error.

When I run make install, what I get before the conflict message is:

===>  Compressing manual pages for openssl-1.0.1_8zopenssl-1.0.1_8
===>  Running ldconfig
/sbin/ldconfig -m /usr/local/lib
Installing openssl-1.0.1_8...pkg: openssl-1.0.1_8 conflicts with
heimdal-1.5.2_4 (installs files into the same place).
Problematic files: /usr/local/man/man3/DH_generate_key.3.gz
*** [fale-pkg] Error code 70
