This was already answered in reply to your previous post on this same
issue.  As mentioned in the reply, OpenSSL has been upgraded, and both
of its shared libraries have been bumped, e.g. they are now named
libcrypto.so.8 and libssl.so.8.

(Apparently you deleted the old libcrypto.so.7 and libssl.so.7, even
though you should never do so until your ports are upgraded.)

No, that is something entirely different.  It is mainly cosmetic, and
you can ignore it, it will go away at the next kernel update, if your
kldxref executable is new enough.

It is easiest to use pkg-static to reinstall your ports, e.g.:

pkg-static update
pkg-static upgrade

Alternatively, rebuild all ports depending on OpenSSL.
