So something seems to be running. Do a ps -aux and see if anything like
pluto, racoon or isakmpd is running?
Or check with 'netstat -an | grep :500' to see if something is using
port 500 udp. You can then check with lsof to see which process this is.

Other explanations might be missing kernel components, but if the above doesn't
answer it, please post an 'ipsec barf' for us to have a look at.
