It's making a up and smp module. The spec was designed to make many
modules (bibgmem,sp,up,athlon etc) and bundle them into one package. Upon
runtime, using 'calcgoo' it would figure out the running kernel and use
that ipsec.o module.

rpmbuild -ba openswan-2/packaging/redhat/openswan.spec --define 'buildklips 1'

You should prob use KERNELSRC=/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build

Uhm, what would we do if the module is loaded? If it is active?

That is probably a completely different spec file.

Can you try this with 2.3.0 using the above hints I provided?
