Hmm... I have /proc/net/pfkey, but not /proc/net/ipsec_version.  What's with the latter one?  KLIPS patches or something?

Yeah, I may do that.  I was having problems with the vanilla 2.4.27 when I applied klips patches and grsecurity patches so I was hoping I could defer to someone else's better patch judgement.  I think that gentoo's hardened-dev-sources just has the native 2.6 ipsec stuff.

Thanks for the help!
