vpnc 0.5.3 bug in current?

Hi, I'm trying to setup a vpn tunnel to my home router (fritzbox). What I found is that it works with Xubuntu 14.04 and vpnc version 0.5.3r512 while slackware-current has vpnc version 0.5.3 and it fails with
vpnc: vpnc.c:1164: lifetime_ike_process: Assertion `0' failed.
It is a IPsec Xauth PSK tunnel configuration, I used identical .conf files on both test machines.

Regards, Uli

to avoid confusion, vpnc is not included in Slackware, but is available on SBo.

try building vpnc using this SlackBuild

please report if it works ok.
