That part I understand. The part I *don't* understand is what
installing extra modules from Ubuntu's 14.04 repository does.
Does that mean I can then make use of those plugins (and then
configure them via the snippets in strongswan.d/charon/ ) ?
In other words, is
apt-get install strongswan strongswan-plugin-ldap strongswan-plugin-xauth-noauth
./configure ... --enable-xauth-pam --enable-xauth-noauth
(leaving aside the strongswan version of course)
