I keep things pretty up to date, and this machine isn't that old anyway.  It's possible that due to order of operations when I was building things that bind was previously linked against the system openssl libraries, rather than the ports version.

However, anything else that is currently depending on the openssl shared library from ports (as opposed to the bundled system) will need to be recompiled before it will work, as will bind 9.8.

I'll give that a shot.. thanks, it sounds promising.

Yeah, I have to wonder if there's something that can be done in ports to prevent this from being an issue.
