17.79. ssl

Possible arguments: (none), build, run

Provide support for OpenSSL. A build- or run-time only dependency can be specified using build or run. These variables are available for the port's use, they are also added to MAKE_ENV:


Path to the OpenSSL installation base.


Path to OpenSSL's configuration files.


Path to the OpenSSL libraries.


Path to the OpenSSL includes.


If defined, the path the linker needs to use to find the OpenSSL libraries.


If a port does not build with an OpenSSL flavor, set the BROKEN_SSL variable, and possibly the BROKEN_SSL_REASON_flavor:

BROKEN_SSL=	libressl
BROKEN_SSL_REASON_libressl=	needs features only available in OpenSSL
