You should be able to force the install without problems. We will fix the
packaging to check for proper ipsec kernel support, and hope that the kernel
somehow Provides: ipsec properly.

Also be aware that currently, setkey is needed for proper ipsec support using
the native 2.6 stack, so you will still need to install ipsectools until some
of the setkey functionality has been integrated into pluto.
