Yes. Several critical base system components require the base OpenSL. So, I
seem to recall that while WITHOUT_OPENSSL will skip the optional SSL stuff,
I am pretty sure that some of the OpenSSL always are built and are
considered too critical to rely on a port being installed... like logging
in, adding users, etc.
