Opera is a closed-source application. It is available only as a port as its commercial license does not permit redistribution in other packages. The port does not "make" anything, it merely repackages the binary files.

Between 5.1 and 5.2, there was a revision bump of the OpenBSD port due to underlying changes for gtk-update-icon-cache. This changes the package signature, and therefore the underlying dependencies would be refreshed on reinstall ("make print-run-depends" will give you a list). The Opera binary remained unchanged; OpenBSD has nothing to do with that at all.
Opera --version for NetBSD...
Please see OpenBSD FAQ 15.4.2.
