Hi all,

After running 

portsnap fetch update

under FreeBSD 10.2, I tried running


The result was that none of the source packages would download.

As I was only upgrading ownCloud, so I manually downloaded using curl.

Given that this will get old in a hurry, I checked a bit further I found the following:


objdump -x /usr/bin/fetch

I find

Dynamic Section:
  NEEDED      libfetch.so.6
  NEEDED      libssl.so.7
  NEEDED      libcrypto.so.7
  NEEDED      libc.so.7

#openssl version
OpenSSL 1.0.1p-freebsd 9 Jul 2015

# ls -l /usr/lib/libssl.so.7
-r--r--r--  1 root  wheel  442736 Mar  4 07:44 /usr/lib/libssl.so.7

Were the recent security updates back ported? If so fetch needs to be rebuilt, likely causing the download failures.
