That's a bulk build by jperkin@, so it seems intentional.  Anyone is
welcome to do a bulk build on other systems, and that would be most welcome.

So far no one has spoken up in favor of having two openssl
implementations at once.

We probably could allow people to select pkgsrc openssl on
netbsd-current, so packages get 1.1.1.  That may require other things
that use openssl to come from pkgsrc.
