[Openswan Users] dynamic IP configuration?

I have a working Openswan to Cisco IPSec configuration that uses a static IP address on both ends of the tunnel, which is established over PPP.  I am trying to modify that working configuration so that the Openswan end ('left side' in this case) can use a dynamic IP, which is also NAT'd, as the left tunnel endpoint.  The connection is initiated from the left side once PPP is established on the left side in my current config.
Is this possible, or would the connection now need to be initiated from the right side, since 'right=%any' is required for NAT-T?  I'm lost, any help or examples of configurations that use a dynamically assigned PPP IP address would be much appreciated.

Linux, Openswan 2.4.4
