libressl in MacPorts

Hey guys,

I just wanted to drop a line letting you know that I added libressl yesterday.  All ports have been updated to accept libressl as a dependency instead of openssl where applicable.  As libressl aims to be API compatible with OpenSSL, many ports "just work" or have already been updated by upstream to address libressl changes.  This, however, does not mean that they will all work.  If you come across any build failures in your ports, I suggest you take a look at upstream, FreeBSD, or OpenBSD to see if a patch already exists.  If not, FreeBSD has a pretty nice wiki tracking the common issues and their appropriate resolutions:
