You're right! It seems I did give you bad advice. I'm sorry about that!
I tried on a patched 4.6 machine, and my tor-0.2.2.6-alpha port which
works fine on -current doesn't work on a patched 4.6. So the only
options I see to run Tor on 4.6 at the moment is either not to patch
OpenSSL or to upgrade to -current.
Mixing and matching -CURRENT with -STABLE or -RELEASE is pure evil.
Every overly curious person on this list has made this mistake, at
least once. You will learn from this mistake/experiment, because you
will make a serious mess.
The right answer is backup your data, and do a fresh install of the
most recent -CURRENT snapshot.
