64-bit atomics are supported on some but not all OpenBSD machine
architectures. Squid's autoconf test only tries to use 32-bit atomic
operations; success of this does not imply that 64-bit operations will
also work. In the squid port, I've modified the test, patch below.

Correct that libc++ hasn't been ported to OpenBSD, but that's not a show-
stopper. In ports, we are using gcc 4.8 with its newer libstdc++ to build

You will also run into some issues with libressl if you are building
with SSL inspection support:

- SSLv2 and compression (which AIUI only ever applied to SSLv2?) were
completely removed from libressl (same for google's boringssl).
Patch for this below.

- In the version of libressl in OpenBSD 5.6 (and in boringssl),
the *_cipher_by_char functions were removed; they've been re-added in
newer libressl releases and in -current OpenBSD, Squid uses these so
you'll probably want to run -current for now. (This will be in
OpenBSD 5.7 as well).

3.4-style bumping works for me, though I occasionally run into issues
with EADDRINUSE when binding to sockets (especially when restarting).
I haven't tested peek/splice yet.

There's one other known issue with squid on OpenBSD, rock doesn't work
(creates the initial db, but fails with EMSGSIZE when it tries to open
it at startup, I haven't had chance to investigate this further).
Sorry I haven't got round to opening tickets on the tracker for any
of these yet.
