The OpenSSL in pkgsrc has been upgraded from 0.9.5 to 0.9.6. Yet the
shared libraries it installs have the same version number
( and Is this correct? Can I just
replace the old library with the new one (as this non-change implies)?

The specific reason I am asking was because I wanted to
FORCE_PKG_REGISTER openssl 0.9.6, so that I do not have to deinstall
sendmail and all the other things that depend on openssl while the
upgrade process is recompiling them (ap-ssl-2.7.1 lynx-
imap-uw-2000.0.3nb1 php-imap- imp-2.2.4 openssh-2.5.1p1
mutt-1.2.5i pine-4.33 links-0.95 and sendmail-8.11.3), a process which I
expect will take longer than acceptible to have sendmail out of order.
I only want a new openssh for now...
