kernel image "cloning"

I would like to create a new kernel image a "clone" of my current kernel image with additional ipsec support,

In the end the only difference between the two images

"vmlinuz" and "vmlinuz+ipsec", would be Ipsec support.

Are there special kernel compilation options to achieve that?

You can get the configuration you have (config file), start make menuconfig/make xconfig, add all you need and compile kernel. If you'd like it as a module (nothing included to kernel), just make modules/make modules_install.
