There is a reason why I did not change freeswan other than for 
security-critical bugs during the last 6 months - it is dead... It is no 
longer maintained upstream and has been superseded by openswan. In fact, I am 
currently preparing a transition package that installs openswan. The freeswan 
package will be removed from the archive when all users have finished the 
transition (which might take some while, but the transition package should 
not need to be changed).

with best regards,
