One more hurdle passed. The code is working perfect, AFAIK.
Now one small question: how do I ensure that RAND_engine (and therefore Intel RDRAND output) is being used for the key generation in
Is just loading RAND_engine enough for that?

Declare the group as:
const EC_GROUP *group;
group = EC_KEY_get0_group();

This is fine.
This is very wrong. You're not supposed to free the group.
Note the "get0_group", you're not getting a copy...
