The best way to get this to the right person would be to open a bug  
in trac, assign it to the port maintainer, and attach your patches.

We try to use macports provided libraries whenever possible. (see  
http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/wiki/FAQ -
"Why is MacPorts using its own libraries?")

It means it found one version of the openssl headers and is linked to  
a different version of the library ... that's bad and is probably why  
you are having tls issues.

You can't really delete those files on install, but they are an old  
holdover from before we had destroot.keepdirs , so you can probably  
change the portfile to no longer generate them.
