The natural thing, to sync the openssl package with the tree,
including bumping the shared library version number and all the
dependencies, is complicated by the fact that folks could still build
packages against the openssl in the NetBSD-1.5 and 1.5.1, so if we
bump, say libwwwssl to libwwwssl.2.0 for those users, there will be no
bump for them when the interface really does change, after they
upgrade to current or NetBSD-1.6.
