This is why configure (with the patch) didn't use that openssl binary:
it doesn't work.

Trying something like this ought prove whether or not the patch works
for your use case (I'm using /opt/openssl instead of /usr/local, but
it should otherwise should be equivalent):

$ uname -sr
FreeBSD 14.0-RELEASE-p3

$ /opt/openssl/bin/openssl version Shared object "" not found, required by "openssl"

$ env LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/openssl/lib:/lib:/usr/lib
PATH=/bin:/usr/bin ./configure --with-ssl-dir=/opt/openssl
$ grep OPENSSL_BIN Makefile
                   OPENSSL_BIN='/opt/openssl/bin/openssl' \

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
