I just noticed another issue:
There is no "WITH_OPENSSL_PORT" build option within the NGINX port.
 From looking at the makefile there are:
Both of these will trigger the "NGINX_OPENSSL=yes" option later on in 
the build.
You can also add [PBI_MKPORTAFTER="security/openssl"; export 
PBI_MKPORTAFTER] to pbi.conf and it will include the openssl port within 
the PBI (even if the port does not officially require it).
For additional explanation about the options available within the 
pbi.conf file, please look at the PCBSD wiki page about building PBI
