Yes, flash openwrt (www.openwrt.org) on it, then install openswan by
editing the /etc/ipkg.conf file, and adding:

src openswan ftp://ftp.openswan.org/openswan/binaries/openwrt/buildroot-20040509/ipkg/

then run ikpg update and ipkg install openswan

Packages are a little bit old, since it has been a while since I played with it.
I plan to pick this up in december again.
