Compile with OpenSSL compatibility mode of LibreSSL is a makefile change, not code. Under FreeBSD 10, it's a two line on port configuration and passes all postgresql tests.

Oks, as a fast hack and preface, SCTP has a tcp compatibility code mode, changing the socket call to 'socket(AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, and IPPROTO_SCTP)' in frontend and backend code, uses some of the sctp features (multihoming, 4way handshake) but not others (multistreaming, only one message per stream, like tcp). SCTP is in Linux 2.4+, FreeBSD7+ and other UNIX systems.
Both patchhacks are easy, but I'm still fighting with autotools and studying postgresql developer howtos.
