Strange, it should provide ipsec-userland. I'll look into this.

Odd, so then it does find ipsec-userland?

you didn't do a custom compile? If you are running the binary kernel
package, then I don't understand what happened. Can you try to do a
manual 'modprobe ipsec' and see what happens?

If you do not want the KLIPS stack, but are happy to use the  NETKEY stack,
you do not need the openswan-klips package.
