/etc/rc calls /etc/networks before /usr got mounted, but a recent change
introduced the start of ipnat after ipf, but ipnat resides in /usr/sbin.
Thus ipnat gets not found and not started.
Enable ipf and ipnat in /etc/rc.conf, reboot the system and wonder why
it does not start ipnat, instead prints "ipnat not found" to the console.
There are several possibilities, the simplest would be to move /usr/sbin/ipnat
to /sbin. Another would be to start ipnat from /etc/rc.local. Choose
whatever is appropriate.
