The request to update openssl to 1.1 is here:

The difficulty seems to be that openssl 1.1 has backward-incompatible changes, so old software written in the days of openssl 1.0 or earlier might not work. We will need to identify which ports fall into that category. Then we can either fix all that old software to be openssl 1.1-compatible, or keep an old copy of openssl 1.0 around and make all the old software use that.

If we go the latter route, openssl 1.0 would need to install to a different location than openssl 1.1, and it's worth considering that we have an existing request to have that kind of nonconflicting behavior with openssl and libressl and other similar libraries, so perhaps it's worth coming up with a solution that works for all of them.
