Factors determining binary archivability

At this point, it looks like the vast majority of builds for Blender have
either succeeded or failed, according to the status at
https://ports.macports.org/port/blender/builds. Digging through the logs of
the builders, I encountered this message in the "gather-archives" step:

"blender" is not distributable because its license "gpl" conflicts with
> license "OpenSSL" of dependency "openssl"

Does this mean that the Blender port is yet another victim of The Curse of
the OpenSSL License? Is there any way around this?
