[Openswan Users] Do I need to patch the kernel to build OCF with Openswan?

That's where I am stuck.
I am using RHEL 5(kernel 2.6.18), Openswan (3.0.06).
I have configured openswan now, but the KLIPS support is pending. I mean, I
did make KERNELSRC=/lib/modules/'uname -r'/build module minstall and got
errors !! So, that portion is remaining.
So, do I need to apply patches separately, or make programs and make install
would do it for me?
