I have to agree with the earlier post in another thread that the  
openssl port has become quite a mess with this universal stuff, and I  
think it would be wiser if no other ports copied that code. Copying  
code means you've missed a chance for creating a reusable function.  
Someone who understands all of what was written in the openssl port  
(and I don't, because I just glanced at it) should figure out how to  
make useful reusable functions that can be incorporated into the base  
of MacPorts, rather than duplicate most of it in several other ports,  
each time making ultimate cleanup of the situation more involved.
