looked around a bit more, look  like issue is only in CVS HEAD.  The function ipsec_3des_init is an external function. I can't find where its definition or body is. I wonder where this function defined.

make -C /usr/src/linux  BUILDDIR=/usr/src/openswan-2/modobj26 SUBDIRS=/usr/src/openswan-2/modobj26 MODULE_DEF_INCLUDE=/usr/src/openswan-2/packaging/linus/config-all.h ARCH=i386 modules

*** Warning: "ipsec_3des_init" [/usr/src/openswan-2/modobj26/ipsec.ko] undefined!

  CC      /usr/src/openswan-2/modobj26/ipsec.mod.o
  LD [M]  /usr/src/openswan-2/modobj26/ipsec.ko
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-'


KLIPS26 module built successfully.
ipsec.ko is in /usr/src/openswan-2/modobj26

-rw-r--r--  1 root src 419471 2005-05-08 08:28 ipsec.ko

 320616   10480    5884  336980   52454 ipsec.ko

the functions are defined as extern in two places also it appears this function only used in the CVS HEAD version, can't find in other releases. I am pushed to use cvs for other reason. May be I will try 2.3.1 again.

modobj26/ipsec_alg.c:820:               extern int ipsec_3des_init(void);
linux/net/ipsec/ipsec_alg.c:820:                extern int ipsec_3des_init(void);
