Ports are supported by secteam, and recently I notice "headsup" mail
with intention to make base openssl private and switch all ports to
security/openssl port.

Adding of GOST as 3rd party plugin is technically possible in both
(base, ports) cases, the rest of decision is up to FreeBSD openssl
maintainers and possible contributors efforts.

I need to specially point to "patches" section of the 3rd party GOST
plugin, from just viewing I don't understand, are those additional
openssl patches should be applied to openssl for GOST, or they are just
reflect existent changes in the openssl.
