There is a Wais source with which you can search the EC-enzyme database,
and of course you can use the wais source through gopher.  (Shameless plug:
you can find a link to it in the gopher hole at merlot.welch.jhu.edu in the

   -->    4.  Genbank, PIR, Swiss_PROT and other Database Searches/

directory. :-)  Unfortunately the waisserver which runs the searches seems to 
be down at the moment - I've contacted the maintainer and hope it will be back 
online soon, if not I may serve it here.

If you'd like to ftp the whole database you can get it from (among other places)
ncbi.nlm.nih.gov in the repository/enzyme directory, or (shameless plug :-)
go to the gopher hole at (among other places) merlot.welch.jhu.edu and
go into the 

   -->    2.  FTP Sites For Biology/

directory where there is a link into the ncbi site - 

( 16. NCBI Repository FTP Archive /)

in which you'll find the enzyme directory and the EC-enzyme database
which you can retrieve - it will take a little while as the database
is an 800K file - some gopher clients handle big files better than others.

Best of luck and Happy New Year,
