[strongSwan] No IPsec policies seem to be installing

That's fair.  I did do that, read my logs, but I misunderstood what the 
log was saying it seems.

Here's what I'm getting after copying that back over and removing the 
'=' after conn.

root at OpenWrtMetalTest:/etc# /etc/init.d/ipsec restart
Stopping strongSwan IPsec failed: starter is not running
no files found matching '/etc/strongswan.d/*.conf'
Starting strongSwan 5.5.0 IPsec [starter]...
root at OpenWrtMetalTest:/etc#

I was interpreting "no files found matching '/etc/strongswan.d/*.conf'" 
to mean ipsec.conf.  This is wrong from what you are telling me.  My 
bad.  What should I be debugging?
