You could start charon directly (see e.g. the script from our testing
environment that Andreas referenced).  On the other hand, you could also
just continue to use starter (i.e. build with --enable-stroke) and just
leave the ipsec.conf/ipsec.secrets files empty and don't load the stroke
plugin (i.e. define charon.plugins.stroke.load = no in strongswan.conf
or the config snipped in /etc/strongswan.d/charon).
