Initialization and engines?

Should the recommended initialization code include a call to ENGINE_load_builtin_engines? (Or to OPENSSL_config, which calls ENGINE_load_builtin_engines.) Otherwise, the RdRand engine for getting better random numbers from newer Intel chips (as one example) won't be used.

(My own thoughts on OpenSSL initialization are here.)
