They are supported, but:

    * DSS ciphersuites are disabled by DEFAULT.  You need to
      specify an explicit "-cipher" option to enable these,
      for example:

        $ openssl s_server -accept 12345 \
	    -tls1_2 -cipher DHE-DSS-AES256-GCM-SHA384 \
	    -dhparam dhparam.pem -key dsakey.pem -cert dsacert.pem

      or more typically:

	-cipher 'ALL:!RC4:!aNULL'

    * You should also supply DH parameters as above:

	-dhparam dhparam.pem

      I generated these with:

	$ openssl genpkey -genparam -algorithm dh \
	    -pkeyopt dh_paramgen_prime_len:2048 -out dhparam.pem
