True. But what this means is that when you rebuild a package from pkgsrc, it will link against pkgsrc openssl. Until you do, it will keep using what it was using. Also, base system programs will continue to use the base system openssl. Generally, pkgsrc defaults to preferring pkgsrc openssl on platforms where it is known that the base system openssl is not adequate. I don't think we want a blanket change. So it could well be good to reevalute various os/versions, if there are some combinations for which there is no expectation of the base system dropping SSL2.
