Your kernel already comes with everything you need to be able to use
openswan. Openswan will default to using the native ipsec stack on 2.6
kernels. Just make sure you have ipsec-tools installed for setkey.

Openswan-2.3.x does come with the possibility to compile KLIPS for a 2.6
kernel, but I'd recommend against using it until all the quirks (like
the one you're running into now) are fleshed out.
