You should probably try a newer verison of ip-filter.
I posted patches to the ipfilter list for ip_fil3.0.4 that make it work
in NetBSD-1.2-ALPHA (as of about May 20). There was another set of
patches for 3.1.0alpha posted by Bernd Ernesti <firstname.lastname@example.org>
just before I posted mine. His seem to have a different approach than
mine to hooking into the kernel, but that may be due to changes in 3.1.0a.
I can bounce either/both of those patches to anyone who would like to
have a peek at them.

3.0.4 "works" fine for me, *but* I've yet to install a filter more
complex than "pass in all; pass out all".
