Note that it is dynamic linked so this depends on the OS version.
Using a package is probably the easiest solution.

Alternatively, you could use the port system to build it yourself, that
will take care of the dependencies.

OpenSSL is quite a hurdle if you want to build stuff from scratch
because there are three flavors on FreeBSD. The one in the base
system. and two versions in the ports three. Since they all install
libraries in the same place so you have to change it for every
application. That is done in /etc/make.conf as in


for the old version (now 1.0.2s) or


for the latest version (now 1.1.1c)

The base version has, as far as I know, OpenSSL 1.0.2s 28 May 2019.

Hope this helps,
