System libraries vs. Macports installed libraries

Hi all,
I was wondering whether there is a policy for which library to use if a
version of that library comes with MacOS X and there's also a port
available. Specifically I'm talking about the openssl port/library. If
both approaches work, which library should a port link against ?
