ipsec-tools has made confirmed progress talking to hybrid-xauth clients 
(w/ PAM & RADIUS, etc.) such as Cisco.  I'm not sure where isakmpd(8) 
stands, but development is equally charged.

isakmpd(8) works great for P2P or L2L tunnel subnets, with exception of 
that nasty "IPSEC encapsualtion happens before local directly attached 
subnets are evaluated when unequal length subnets are define" bug --- but 
there is a work-around for that.
