Default Build Nginx with openssl

Hi everybody, I´ve got serious performance problems with ssl, I already tested httpd and nginx, same results, with https://... downloads are more than 50% slower than via http://..., did every tweak(and without, .conf just as simple as possible) you can imagine, but no luck, I guess it´s libre ssl that slows things down .
So my question, how can I compile nginx port on openbsd 6.4 amd64 with opensssl instead of libressl?
Kind regards and thanks in advance

Welcome back!

You are warned by $ pkg_info openssl:
Quote:
This package is not intended for general-purpose use in OpenBSD -
it is present to provide support for applications which cannot be made
compatible with LibReSSL (mostly due to use of removed APIs), and for
test/comparison purposes.
If that does not dissuade you, you might start with the www/nginx port, and modify it to point to the OpenSSL libraries instead.

Does not, I already read that warning, but I need some solution, right now I would like to compile nginx with openssl and test that to be sure if it´s libressl or not. Yesterday I set up a test vps with freebsd, on the same location as my openbsd machine, and to my surprise the freebsd with nginx and the same conf didn´t have any speed difference between https and http, on the freebsd machine nginx -V showed: built with openssl. That´s why I think it´s the crypto on openbsd that slows it down so much. Just don´t know how and wher to make the necessary changes in makefile etc. to build nginx with openssl rather than libressl....
I have little to no experience with ports and since libressl is in the base system I´m kinda lost, sorry.

If you look at what gets installed with the openssl package with $ pkg_info -L openssl you will see that the openssl library (either version 1.0.2 or version 1.1) is named eopenssl.
  • Whether you begin with the OpenBSD port or not, you will need to provision the build tool chain to point to these include files and library. The Makefile for net/nagios/nrpe shows example changes to $CFLAGS and $LDFLAGS to point its tools to eopenssl.
  • I recommend you start with the www/nginx port because it includes OpenBSD-specific patches for nginx, and it has a working build tool chain with a working configuration.

Please note the build tools vary by architecture. The www/nginx $COMPILER string is "base-clang ports-gcc base-gcc". The first match will be chosen. The output of $ make show=CHOSEN_COMPILER will let you know which is being used for your build.

You may find the ports(7) and bsd.port.mk(5) man pages helpful.

Well after trying whole day I´ll give up on that, I´m just not capable it seems to get into these ports, just get errors everything I try. Just not worth it, and just for testing if it´s libressl or not... I still try tomorrow the previous version of openbsd since there were quite some changes in libressl recently, if that´s not better > Freebsd for that webserver, sad but with such slow https performance no way, it´s just slow, especially the photogallery is just at least 3 to 4 times slower with https. Anyway thank you very much.
