I am by no means an expert on connection tracking, but poking through
the sources from alt.ru I don't get the impression that the package as
supplied works at all.  It's possible I am doing things incorrectly,

I am seeing segfaults with conntrackd and my earlier thought that it was
just a /proc path issue may not be fully correct as it's looking for
"nf_conntrack_count" and not "ip_conntrack_count" which is what is
present on the boxes I've looked at.

Just for reference: I rebuilt libnetfilter_conntrack, along with
conntrack_tools, both from alt.ru, so there was no version mismatch.  

If you ever get this working drop me a line; I'd be curious to know
whether the package is indeed not working or I'm just doing something

Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by
definition, not smart enough to debug it.
