I don't see where you get that. The conflict seems to be between
libgcc.a and libc. You could try restoring the "-Bsymbolic" that was
removed (IIRC) for the benefit of NetBSD-1.4*. (Edit out the middle
block of patch-af, then run "make distinfo" to regenerate the
checksums.) If that works, I, for one, would be OK with dropping the
other hacks for NetBSD-1.4.2, too (in favor of OpenBSD 3.2, heh).

It would be better, on the whole, to go with your OS's. That probably
means upgrading or applying a security patch. The package system won't
be happy with it unless it either finds openssl-0.9.6g, or finds the
string "SSL_R_SSL2_CONNECTION_ID_TOO_LONG" in the header
"/usr/include/openssl/ssl.h", as either is taken to be evidence that
the vulnerability has been addressed. The security advisory came out
on July 30, 2002. When did OpenBSD 3.2 ship?
