PREFER_NATIVE+=openssl and PREFER.openssl=native mean the same thing,
expect that the latter is undocumented.
USE_BUILTIN.openssl=yes is "stronger" than setting PREFER_NATIVE because
"preferring" still means that the native package must satisfy whatever
checks are in openssl/builtin.mk, whereas "using" means that we use the
native package regardless of whether it satisfies those checks.
In general, you should set PREFER_NATIVE.
