The compiler knows nothing about /usr/sfw, it's lang/gcc34 from
pkgsrc. And even Sun's ld should have no special magic wrt to

I've tried adding

BUILDLINK_PASSTHRU_DIRS = /usr/sfw/include /usr/sfw/lib

to my local mk.conf, and alternatively to security/openssl/
Both versions did the trick. Thanks, once more :)

I think putting it in security/openssl/ would be the easiest:

.      if !empty(H_OPENSSLV:M/usr/sfw/*)
BUILDLINK_PREFIX.openssl=       /usr/sfw
BUILDLINK_PASSTHRU_DIRS = /usr/sfw/include /usr/sfw/lib

Then setting PREFER_NATIVE=openssl is all that has to be done, and the
principle of least surprise is adhered to. I'm not sure about the
exact syntax, i.e. how to handle other packages setting/extending
these variables.
