This is fun, I get this with 2.8.7dev.11a (but not dev.8):

checking if SIGWINCH is defined... yes
checking if you want NSS compatible SSL libraries... no
checking if you want ssl library... /usr
checking if you want gnutls support... no
checking if you want gnutls-openssl compat... no
checking if you want socks library... no

Can be fixed with two changes:

• export ac_cv_path_PKG_CONFIG=none into the configure environment
 ‣ it seems to try to still use an installed pkg-config from ports
   while compiling for base; pkg-config is undesirable anyway even
   for ports because it “automagically” picks up stuff it finds in-
   stead of having proper dependency handling
• replace 「--with-ssl=/usr」 with 「--with-ssl」
 ‣ apparently, the argument to --with-ssl is assigned to a variable
   which is thusly tristate (no, yes, somepath), but at least one
   of the CF_SSL checks thinks it’s boolean, checks only for equality
   with ‘yes’ (instead of diverging from ‘no’) and fails if a path
   is given

The script is using the --exists option of pkg-config to see if pkg-config knows about the library. If pkg-config returns a success here, it'll use the non-pkg-config checks. (One of those has a problem - either pkg-config is returning a success on the incorrect --exists, or there's something amiss with the non-pkg-config checks - I'm thinking it may be the first since the OpenBSD system has no pkg-config).
