Description Po-Chuan Hsieh freebsd_committer 2021-07-13 18:09:04 UTC
OpenSSL ships with pkgconfig files (libcrypto.pc, libssl.pc and openssl.pc).
OpenSSL port install them but OpenSSL from base system does not.
Therefore, some ports (e.g. devel/grpc and security/libfido2) need extra patch if OpenSSL from base system is used [1][2].
It would be better if we could install these pkgconfig files.
