    Build script is installing openssl pkg on FreeBSD 11.1

    I recently saw that I have openssl added in ports and I thought that I do not use it at all (FreeBSD have openssl in base by default and my ports are compiled against it).

    I removed the port. Then I saw that it is being automatically installed again by the build script:

    root@srv2:/usr/local/directadmin/custombuild # ./build update
    Updating FreeBSD repository catalogue...
    FreeBSD repository is up to date.
    All repositories are up to date.
    Checking integrity... done (0 conflicting)
    The following 1 package(s) will be affected (of 0 checked):

    New packages to be INSTALLED:
    openssl: 1.0.2o_4,1

    Number of packages to be installed: 1

    The process will require 12 MiB more space.
    [1/1] Installing openssl-1.0.2o_4,1...
    [1/1] Extracting openssl-1.0.2o_4,1: 100%
    Message from openssl-1.0.2o_4,1:

    Edit /usr/local/openssl/openssl.cnf to fit your needs.
    ./custombuild.tar.gz 100% of 195 kB 1720 kBps 00m00s
    Extracting custombuild.tar.gz...
    x custombuild/
    It is probably coming from this part of the code:

                    if [ ${MAINVER} -ge 10 ]; then
                            # Fixes apache OpenSSL problem: /usr/include/openssl/bn.h:603:1: error: unknown type name 'CRYPTO_THREADID'
                            if [ ! -d /usr/local/openssl ]; then
                                    ${PKG_INSTALL} openssl
    Now my questions:

    1. Is DA actually configuring the packages to use the OpenSSL from ports and not the base version, or this is some apache specific "hack"?

    2. If so, can I go ahead and directly switch to the ports openssl in make.conf without breaking anything (from the DA packages I mean - I know I need to recompile the ports that are dependent on openssl)?
