No bites on this yesterday. can anyone shed some light on it?

Most of us assume that one would only use non-standard security

is this something i should or shouldnt have in my make.conf?

I use openssh-portable-4.4.p1 on my machines and cannot recall when
NO_OPENSSL= true was added to make.conf.

is this something I should keep in my make.conf? what are the
implications if i keep it vs removing it?

Are you getting SSL from a port?  If not, you should remove it to get
updates to the base system version.  [SSH uses SSL, but doesn't
include its own version; it uses the base or ports version, as
directed by some port makefile logic that I haven't looked through
very carefully.]

thanks for the reply. i have cleaned up the entry for it. again, i dont recall how it ever got there. I use openssh-portable, but everything else is from the base system. maybe it was an artifact from the 5.x days when I did run openssl from the ports tree.
