This message doesn't help at all when you have a kernel that doesn't 
have it enabled and thus you can't find any module by that name. (And 
you CAN have a kernel with it build in, no module in that case too)

The option for algif_skcipher is:
"Cryptographic API" -> "User-space interface for symmetric key cipher algorithms"

The other option (that is responsible for af_alg) is hidden and 
automatically 'select'ed by activating the option above.
