 I think there may be something to this PR.
 One of the packages I was building inside tinderbox-dragonfly pulled in
 audio/pulseaudio, but stop with very similar error messages as seen at
 the top of the PR.
 Tinderbox is chrooted.  I don't think a standard DragonFly installation
 runs into this issue.  It appears to me that pkgsrc mk scripts are
 detecting that openssl is on the system just fine, but the pulseaudio
 configure script isn't able to.
 It seems to mainly rely on pkg-config.  There aren't any openssl.pc
 files for the /usr/bin/openssl executable, so I am I not sure how that
 this is detected ok on a standard system.
 I was only able to solve the problem by using PREFER_PKGSRC option to
 tell it that pkgsrc's openssl needed to get pulled in.
 In a related topic, pkg/43420 questions why so many dependencies are
 required.  In this case, openSSL is only needed to support Airtunes.  I
 would think that this should be a non-suggested option rather than a
 mandatory dependency as the author of pkg/43420 proposes.
 In any case, I wanted to provide feedback that Aleksey is not the only
 one to see this problem in some form and basically confirm that it is a
 real issue, at least in some configurations.
