It seems to work fine for me despite the message.
Using my powers of my absolutely minimal C knowledge I read
the source code for l2tpd :)
    if (gconfig.forceuserspace)
        log (LOG_LOG, "Not looking for kernel support.\n");
        kernel_support = 0;


    log (LOG_LOG, "This binary does not support kernel L2TP.\n");

I imagine that L2TP can be integrated using sockets from kernel
space(?). The binary
however did not get compiled with that option, hence you get this
warning. l2tpd
however will work fine.
