Description of problem:
The current RHEL 4 beta and rawhide ship with ipsec-tools 0.2.5.
This is the same old release as in RHEL3. In the meantime, the
ipsec-tools project (http://ipsec-tools.sourceforge.net) has released
version 0.3, which has stabilised and is currently at 0.3.3.

I vote for upgrading ipsec-tools to version 0.3 for RHEL4.
