Probably more are installing by source, since we do not have or binary
building completely in place yet, though some other people are building
binary packages (ATrpms and foobar.fi)

Check the rpm descriptions for details (rpm -qi).
The natt patch is for applying the nat-traversal patch to a kernel that
doesnt natively support this feauture. 2.6 kernels already support nat-t,
as do rehat enterprise kernels with the ipsec backport. All other kernels
need the natt patch.
The kern patch is for KLIPS, the Openswan ipsec stack. It is needed for
stock 2.2/2.4 kernels. There will be a KLIPS patch for 2.6 kernels shortly.
The "kern" patches should be called "klips" patches. I just noticed that
newer patches are called "kern" instead of "klips". This will be fixed
