Good question; it could be treated like guile, but that may be a lot of
work.  Once we have a package someone could locally point at it and do a
bulk build and see what happens.

I am unclear on the degree of breakage:

  - Is it expected that a program that builds against 1.1.1 with no
    deprecation warnings will build against 3?
  - What is the general state of upstreams: what fraction of ssl-using
    packages have releases that build cleanly with openssl3.

I would expect 3 in pkgsrc and 1.1 native is just like 1.1 pkgsrc and
1.0 native.   That seems to work more or less fine.   Can you clarify
your concern?
