You can try my VPN setup script, I created it largely just for my self 
so I could easily remember all the knobs of VPN with out needing any notes.
But thought it would be nice to try and make it easier on other people 
as well, and thought it would be good to try and make it comparable easy 
to all the super easy and cheap SOHO equipment you can get these days.
It does the racoon(ipsec-tools) configuration the ipsec.conf and the 
needed routes. Everything you should need excluding ip configuration in 
/etc/rc.conf and firewall rules

I haven't had that much feed back on it except the slack code :P
