Why bother? With netkey you don't need to contact nearest ip at all. On
all systems I use I only use one interface ip on the firewall system
for all vpn communications. So independent on interface where from
clients contact my firewall they always use public internet ip on it.

So listening only one ip with xl2tpd just works for all.

If you need to listen on multiple ips with xl2tpd you need ot patch
support for it.
