That would be nice, since I'm using those :) :)

Once the nat-t code has been successfully ported, we can build an ipsec.o

Don't patch udp.c and sock.h, those patches are the old espinudp code.
Check out the url of the diff I posted earlier to the list. The port has
been done by using Herbert Xu's old port and the RHEL3 backport code.
There are still bugs to be found, but it already compiles.
