Thanks for your advice.

Uninstalling and reinstalling Erlang didn't help, but I did observe
that $macport_home/lib/erlang/lib/crypto- is empty apart from a
docs dir and an info file.

Upgrading openssl to openssl 0.9.8h_0 made no difference.

Installing Erlang from source elicited no errors, and the crypto dir
is populated, but crypto.start(). stil gives me the same error **
exception error: bad function 'crypto.start'

The Erlang readme states that the build is tested on OS X 10.5.3, so I
may try using Ubuntu in VMWare in the short term until it's tested on
