Well only OpenSSL 1.1.0 currently supports X25519. One way is to look at
the output of:
openssl list -public-key-algorithms
Though that command doesn't exist before OpenSSL 1.1.0. Alternatively just
generate a private key with:
openssl genpkey -algorithm X25519
Which will work in OpenSSL 1.1.0 but give an error in previous versions.
