My original error was this:

$ port outdated
The following installed ports are outdated:
rsync                          3.1.3_0 < 3.2.1_1         
yubico-piv-tool                1.7.0_1 < 2.0.0_0         
$ sudo port upgrade outdated and not yubico-piv-tool
--->  Computing dependencies for openssl
Error: Can't install openssl because conflicting ports are active: libressl
Error: Problem while installing openssl
Error: Follow to report a bug.

Just for kicks, I replaced line 31 in rsync port file




and was able to build rsync 3.2.1_1 successfully after that.

$ otool -L /opt/local/bin/rsync

$ port provides /opt/local/lib/libcrypto.44.dylib
/opt/local/lib/libcrypto.44.dylib is provided by: libressl

So rsync 3.2.1 can be built with libressl. 

I wonder what is the proper way to make rsync port automatically use libressl if it is installed already.

Macports does not allow to have both libressl and openssl ports installed at the same time. Does it mean that I cannot upgrade rsync beyond version 3.1.3 if I am using libressl?
