This sounds very interesting.

I do have trouble understanding on how this would make a difference
with how it's currently working.

base openssl uses libssl.so.6 and libcrypto.so.6

current port openssl is using .so.7

So they too have different sonames; How could changing this to
.so.0.9.8 for base and so.1.0.2 for port make things behave
