I'm sorry for not expressing myself clearly.
What I really mean is that I surely will use the other two components(setkey and  racoon) as the userspace tools of native IPsec in Linux kernel.
What confused me is that after I've turn on the " PF_KEY socket" option( the kernel version is 2.6.5)  , has some form of the PF_KEY implementation been there in the kernel? and Does the kernel still need the Library with PF_KEY implementation(i.e. libipsec) provided by IPsec-Tools?
