Unable to build strongswan on 19.07.2

I am trying to build image for a MT7621 based target. I want to enable strongswan in the build. However, I notice that strongswan shown in 19.07.2 release does not show details/ all modules as shown in 18.06 package. I have verified that kernel mod-ipsec is enabled. However, build fails with error-

**install: cannot stat '/home/aashish/openwrt-19.07.2/build_dir/target-mipsel_24kc_musl/strongswan-5.8.2/ipkg-install/etc/ipsec.conf': No such file or directory**

Can someone help me in getting this fixed?


Hello, I'm facing exactly the same issue. Custom 19.07. build, strongswan enabled in menuconfig.
