#668314 - dev-embedded/u-boot-tools-2018.05 libressl support
677960 - the previously uploaded patch seems to work. passing the '--nodeps' argument to portage makes sys-apps/kmod-26 emerge successfully on my Amd64 system
678430 - patch submitted for review.
678440 - builds without effort. has all the same useflags and dependencies in and out of the libressl overlay (aside from libre vs open ssl). I'm not sure I understand what's here to fix.
678502 - patch submitted for review.
678504 - version bump seems to have addressed this.
562050 - not sure which versions we're talking about. a patch from 670170 seems to handle qtnetwork-5.11.x and libressl-2.8.x , the overlay handles it well for libressl-2.7.x, and I'm not sure where else to go from here.
588782 - looks like a fun challenge, the way DES is renamed in LibreSSL. And then, suddenly things break. I look foward to seeing/making a solution.
