So I think we have to wait until we can declare programs that don't
support openssl3 as broken.  Of course the real bug is openssl's lack of
API compat.

Sure, but on systems where builtin openssl is rejected by pkgsrc, every
package builds against the pkgsrc version.  The only problem is system
libs that link against 1.0, and it seems that in practice we are mostly
getting away with it.
