If WITH_OPENSSL_PORT=yes exists in /etc/make.conf, will the system
compile against that as well or only applications?

The base system always links against the copy of openssl in base
irrespective of the WITH_OPENSSL_PORT setting:

% grep WITH_OPENSSL_PORT /etc/make.conf
WITH_OPENSSL_PORT= yes

A sample application from the base that uses openssl:

% ldd /usr/bin/ssh
/usr/bin/ssh:
[...]
libcrypto.so.6 => /lib/libcrypto.so.6 (0x8012dd000)
[...]

Whereas something installed from ports uses the ports version of openssl:

% ldd /usr/local/sbin/sendmail
/usr/local/sbin/sendmail:
[...]
libssl.so.8 => /usr/local/lib/libssl.so.8 (0x800ce8000)
libcrypto.so.8 => /usr/local/lib/libcrypto.so.8 (0x800f4a000)
[...]

So, yes, you do need to update the system in the manner described in
the recent FreeBSD-SA-12:01.openssl security advisory.

Cheers,

Matthew
