Package: freeswan
Version: 1.99-6

I haven't looked to see exactly what's going on here, but I can't get
freeswan to recreate /etc/init.d/ipsec.  Here's what I did:
# rm /etc/init.d/freeswan
# apt-get install --reinstall freeswan

postinst chokes because update-rc.d is called, but /etc/init.d/ipsec
doesn't exist:
Setting up freeswan (1.99-6) ...
update-rc.d: /etc/init.d/ipsec: file does not exist
dpkg: error processing freeswan (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

I had to purge freeswan before I could get it to reinstall the startup

SFAICT there is nothing to do.  dpkg already has these options:

dpkg already prompts for each conffile that has changed.  If the
file hasn't changed, there is no point in prompting.
