Hi Martin,

> I'm trying to build strongswan v. 4.5.0 for Maemo Linux Paltform. 

Our developer Tobias ported strongSwan to Maemo and built a graphical
configuration applet (but for IKEv2, only).

The Debian scripts for the IKEv2 daemon are available from [1], the
frontend including build scripts from [2]. These are not yet part of the
distribution, you'll have to build from git [3].

As OpenSSL is on the device anyway, you might switch to that crypto
backend (--enable-openssl --disable-gmp ..., see Debian/rules).

Yes, Tobias requested the required IPsec modules for kernel-power, v.46
should work fine.

Hard to say what's the problem. The package above uses a monolithic
build (--enable-monolithic), maybe it helps. Tobias probably knows more.
