The one time I can recall this being an issue was with sqlite on 
redhat/centos, where the version reported is not always the actual 
version installed...

It would be more friendly to support a distribution; unless we have 
compelling reasons to use newer or non-standard libraries. So maybe we 
would need the ability to turn features off (e.g. --no-gost) where they 
would not be available on the vanilla distribution?

Of course this wouldn't help the test environment.
