[Openswan Users] KLIPS (2.4.11) & Kernel make issues

I have been experiencing difficulties in patch the 2.6 kernel with KLIPS.
Initially I tried to create a custom kernel rpm which included klips as
default (I followed the instructions here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/CustomKernel). Due to the number of
issues I experienced whilst trying to create the custom rpm, I gave up
and decided to look at creating a custom kernel the normal way.
I downloaded kernel 2.6.22 source and the OpenSwan KLIPS patch
(2.4.12rc3), patched the kernel and ran make. I then received the
following error message;
net/ipsec/ipsec_xmit.c: In function ‘ipsec_xmit_encap_bundle’:
net/ipsec/ipsec_xmit.c:1343: error: ‘ixt_e’ undeclared (first use in
net/ipsec/ipsec_xmit.c:1343: error: (Each undeclared identifier is
reported only once
net/ipsec/ipsec_xmit.c:1343: error: for each function it appears in.)
net/ipsec/ipsec_xmit.c:1345: error: ‘blocksize’ undeclared (first use in
net/ipsec/ipsec_xmit.c:1354: error: ‘ixt_a’ undeclared (first use in
make: *** [net/ipsec/ipsec_xmit.o] Error 1
make: *** [net/ipsec] Error 2
make: *** [net] Error 2
I assumed (a result of past experience) that maybe the 2.6.22 kernel was
a bit new, so I downloaded a kernel version I knew I had previously got
working 188.8.131.52. Applied the patch and ended up with the same result. I
have also tried 2.4.11 version of KLIPS patch.
Could someone please advise on what steps I can take? I have googled
this and seen reference to changing the KLIPSCOMPILE= in Makefile.inc
(the change is already there as using 2.4.11).
I am using Fedora 7, but had originally started out with Fedora 8, and
then downgrade as I believe there maybe issues with KLIPS/Fedora 8.
