[strongSwan] ipsec.conf strongswan.conf on Android

I have compiled the strongswan source using the Android (ARM) make system (using Android.mk instead of the Linux autoconf Makefiles) with the intent of running it on Android the same way like it does on an Ubuntu PC.  This way I can reuse all the configuration files like /etc/strongswan.conf, /etc/strongswan.d/* and load the plugins.

However, if in the stronswan.conf, we set load_modular = yes, then regardless of what is in strongswan.d/* it would crash when starting it with "ipsec start".   If we set load_modular = no, then it won't crash, but no plugins.
Is it possible to run strongswan ipsec on Android using the command line ipsec and configuration files?  Or must the Android version only run as an GUI apk?  Is the ipsec.conf configuration files method compatible with the Android GUI apk?

Looking at $TOP/external/strongswan-5.1.2/src/libcharon/Android.mk, where it adds all the plugin source file, it does not seem to build any of the plugins under the plugin directory.  Any idea what is missing?
