It's fully suported in the RFC's includig its algorithm number.

I have not yet packaged things up, but I assume there is detection in ./configure
for this.

Red Hat strips out all ECC related routines in openssl, so even on rhel/centos 6
there will be no gost if using the stock openssl package. I'm looking at seeing
if it is possible to add a sub package (openssl-gost) that just has the gost
engine, but that will require some time to see how compatible that is with the
"stripping" used in Red Hat.
