I have the same problem (PORTs not being rewritten) with a FreeBSD
2.2.7 ftp client. It IS sending the PORT commands all in one go,
but they are still not rewritten. I even tried the posted patch.
Here is a single packet, picked up with tcpdump, on the "outside"

(with manual ascii dump)
ijmeer (126.96.36.199) is the NAT (NetBSD 1.3.3),
polder (188.8.131.52) is the ftp server (NetBSD 1.2.1)
184.108.40.206 is the fake address of the FreeBSD 2.2.7 ftp client.
So what gives? This is rather distressing, I am supposed to have this
firewall working this week...
