Yes, you can build MacPorts from source, and use the --with-curlprefix configure flag to point to a curl library that uses a newer openssl or libressl or other library. Don't use the curl library installed by that MacPorts installation or it will break if you later deactivate the curl port. Instead, use a manually-compiled curl library or a curl library installed by a different MacPorts installation.
