There is a .c file that contains the crypt, and a .c file that is the
format.  The gost_init is in the crypt file (gost_plug.c).  the crypt is
written in the model of OpenSSL (ctx model).  Likely it is the exact same
code in our gost_plug.c file as in the openssl.

We 'may' be able to simply use #defines within gost_plug.c and if we can
detect that gost is installed within the openssl (and compatible version),
then we simply use the OSSL, and the gost_plug.c becomes a module where all
code is commented out.

Just a thought (if there is 'something' we can detect at compile time).
