Hi George,

I hope you don't mind I spread this to tech-pkg - someone there may care.

No, and i can't seem to get it going out of the box, either.
Open Issues:
  * get the vpnc-script example file copied to /usr/pkg/etc
    (I have no idea how the CONF_FILES framework works)
  * running the thing with either an "empty" or the provided
    vpnc-script runs, but my tun0 is not configured at all.

Until someone fixes this, I'd very much like this to stay at 0.3.2.
FWIW, I've placed my package here:
Updates/patches against pkgsrc welcome!
