Add support for the Equal Earth projection, which will be included in PROJ 5.2.0 (OSGeo/proj.4/issues/1085).

Due to, projection support in GDAL / PROJ is going to be in flux, so it might not be worth adding the support the current way it is done for now.
As a workaround you can use "+proj=eqearth +wktext" to pass the string unmodified to PROJ (the key is to use +wktext)

Ah yes, with +wktext the projection can be used in QGIS without modifying GDAL. Excellent, thank you!

I guess this issue can be closed then?

Let it open for now so that we can use it as a reminder to check if that properly works once all the gdalbarn work has been done
