For RELENG_6 and earlier, you will need the ports version of openssl in order to use rsa-sha256. Some ported software needs that (eg. mail/dkim-milter). Otherwise there isn't any great advantage either way. RELENG_7 and above are close to up-to-date already (version 0.9.8e rather than 0.9.8f) and support all the latest ciphers. > Also, if I did install the port version, how would I > insure that applications would use it as opposed to to > the version in the base system?
