Where do you undefine "WITH_OPENSSL_BASE"??
It's undefined by default, but if you'ld defined it you have put the definition into /etc/make.conf or /usr/local/etc/pkgtools.conf WITH_OPENSSL_BASE is a flag for the security/openssl port which causes that port to overwrite the SSL shlibs and applications in the base system. That's not something to do without due care and attention as it can cause various problems. If you need the openssl port (which you probably don't as openssl is in the base system) think first of installing it under /usr/local. In this case, probably all you need to do is: # pkg_delete security/openssl then install portaudit, and then (if you're sure you need it) re-install security/openssl. Be warned: you might have to repeat that whole rigmarole every time an upgrade to portaudit comes out.
