using pf in NetBSD is somewhat discouraged -- it's a very outdated
version of OpenBSD pf, and is disabled by default for all archs,
not just ARM.

If you don't have any preference, it's a better choice to use npf.
ARM kernels set securelevel, so you need to load npf & bpfjit at boot
(you can't do it after boot).
add to /etc/modules.conf:

and don't forget to set net.inet.ip.forwarding=1 (also inet6.ip6)
