The answer: use the ip command.
I wrote this  script to determine the maximum MSS I could get away
with using IPSec, and came up with the value 218.
Problem solved! My hosts are now talking to each other encrypted!
(Although I think that's a terribly small packet size, so I'm probably
going to have performance issues...)
