I am guessing this doesn't matter for pkgsrc on NetBSD which don't depend on the openssl package. But for other platforms it may be needed.

For example, if the dependent packages foo-1.2.3 links with (instead of now, then foo needs to become foo-1.2.3nb1. (Or how we will we know the difference between two different packages with identical version?)

Technically I suppose you're correct. But that's alot of packages to
bump for a change that only affects people who actively chose to not
use builtin openssl. I can't make this call, but if pmc wants to have
hundreds of packages bumped I will see it through. I'll make a survey
of exactly how many packages we're talking about. I would guess at least
500, maybe more.

Speaking on behalf of pkgsrc-pmc, please do the PKGREVISION bumps for the reasons outlined by Jeremy above.
