This is with respect to how libipsecconf behaves, not the scripts.
When an ipsec.conf uses the include directive, and the file mentioned does
not exist, the error message is terrible. It claims to be in the first
line of the missing file.
parser.l looks for include files using the glob(3) library call. One of
the calls uses the flag GLOB_NOMAGIC (a GNU-extension). This call then
succeeds even if there is no match.
This seems like a mistake. When would this be the right thing to do?
Perhaps if the file's actual name includes glob wildchars. But by that
argument, all glob calls should have that flag.
I propose getting rid of GLOB_NOMAGIC.
I'm too lazy to figure out what the scripts do or what the documentation
