            Bug ID: 256508
           Summary: security/strongswan: ipsec.conf never loaded
           Product: Ports & Packages
           Version: Latest
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any

I have to admit that I'm new to IPsec and StrongSwan. The subject is FreebSD
13-STABLE (FreeBSD 13.0-STABLE #159 stable/13-n245920-95b7e4e0feb: Mon Jun  7
12:03:41 CEST 2021 amd64) and recent port security/strongswan
(strongswan-5.9.2_2 ). 

The setup I use has been tested for good on a Linux Xubunto box 21.04 
(ipsec.conf) so far by editing and preparing the ipsec.conf and ipsec.secrets
files, for FreeBSD's port located at /usr/local/etc. FreeBSD box is a client
and should contact a network behind an AVM Fritz!Box router with a configured
IPsec VPN.

Whe starting strongswan or restarting strongswan it seems that
/usr/local/etc/ipsec.conf never is read or does never configure any VPN:

# service strongswan restart
Stopping strongswan.
Starting strongswan.
no files found matching '/usr/local/etc/swanctl/conf.d/*.conf'
no authorities found, 0 unloaded
no pools found, 0 unloaded
no connections found, 0 unloaded

It is also remarkable that the files


contain an unsubstituted variable "${sysconfdir}" which seems to stay
unsubstituted while ipsec starts up - I might be wrong.
