Error installing Apache from port with NSS

I'm trying to install Apache 2.4 in an ezjail using the port.

I issued the following command from the jail /usr/ports/www/apache24
directory to begin:

make config-recursive install clean

and I chose to use the NSS option when installing.

The error message I eventually get is:

"configure: error: Crypto was requested but no crypto library could be
enabled; specify the location of a crypto library using --with-openssl,
--with-nss, and/or --with-commoncrypto."

I then ran: make deinstall clean for the Apache port, installed NSS from
the port, and re-ran my Apache install and I still get the same error.

I see the error message clearly says to " specify the location of a crypto
library using --with-openssl, --with-nss..." but I don't know how to do


Thank you,
