Maybe we should run netbsd-9 bulk builds with PREFER_PKGSRC=openssl?
We would need to do the same to avoid libraries in base that link
against libssl/libcrypto.  I haven't thought through all the ABI
difficulties with this -- it would presumably require updating all
packages at once, but maybe that's expected practice anyway in
quarterly releases so not an issue.

But it's not far from the need to do netbsd-9 bulk builds with
GCC_REQD+=10 or whatever it is these days.
