Crypt::SSLeay does not explicitly support any openssl engines, however
that is not to say that it would not work with them or not.  It uses
the openssl APIs, so I imagine that since those APIs know how to use
the engine, then it will all work together nicely.

To see for yourself, once you have the openssl engine done, try
to build & run Crypt::SSLeay against it.
