I've turned the available debug options on (state, packet, etc), but
nothing from xl2tpd. The following output was captured during an attempt
to establish a VPN connection:

# xl2tpd -D
xl2tpd[20407]: setsockopt recvref: Protocol not available
xl2tpd[20407]: L2TP kernel support not detected.
xl2tpd[20407]: xl2tpd version xl2tpd-1.2.0 started on Solidox PID:20407
xl2tpd[20407]: Written by Mark Spencer, Copyright (C) 1998, Adtran, Inc.
xl2tpd[20407]: Forked by Scott Balmos and David Stipp, (C) 2001
xl2tpd[20407]: Inherited by Jeff McAdams, (C) 2002
xl2tpd[20407]: Forked again by Xelerance (www.xelerance.com) (C) 2006
xl2tpd[20407]: Listening on IP address, port 1701

I've also tried 'debug all' in /etc/ipsec.conf. Lots of debug information,
but I couldn't see anything of use in it.
