Centos should come with openswan already. If you really need KLIPS, you
need to install kernel-source/kernel-devel module and run:

cd openswan-2.4.6
export KERNELSRC=/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build
make module module_install
make programs install

make sure netkey is then unloaded: rmmod af_key ah4 esp4 ipcomp

If you dont require klips, then you should not need to compile anything
