Erm, Terry, this performance already comes from libcrypto, if you're
using openssl: libmp/libgmp doesn't enter in the equation whatsoever,
because it's not used.
If you're using libgmp to do your SSL via some local code, then you're
not using the default FreeBSD SSL libraries and can continue to
happily use your local code with the (faster) libgmp port.
So performance _is_ relevent.
