I use a script that I call pkgreq (pkg-required). It is # cat pkgreq #! /bin/sh cd /var/db/pkg pkg_info -R "$1*" | more The only thing it shows openssl being used for me is Apache-2.0.49. That is a no-brainer since Apache was updated to .49 after I updated openssl. One thing to remember is that if a header file had been changed, which wasn't the case here, even dynamic library usage may have required a rebuild to be safe. If they had to change the typing of a variable used by a module, any program that used that module with the incorrect typing could have been passing or receiving bad data. Off by one or more errors occur when a structure is modified and using programs aren't rebuilt.
