That's a message from the KLIPS kernel module. Probably after realsetup did
a command to load or set the debug level of the module.

[paul at tla paul]$ grep klipsdebug /usr/local/lib/ipsec/_realsetup
# IPSECklipsdebug       "none"
        test -r /proc/net/ipsec_klipsdebug && ipsec klipsdebug --none ;
                        --debug "\"$IPSECklipsdebug\"" \

The scripts load the kernel module(s), start pluto and load all the
connections in the configuration file into pluto. This is done
using the whack command, that talks to the pluto daemon.
