Log Message:
pf needs to be started after the network is up, because some pf rules
derive IP address(es) from the interface (e.g "... from any to fxp0").
This however, creates window for possible attacks from the network.

Implement the solution proposed by YAMAMOTO Takashi:
Add /etc/defaults/pf.boot.conf and load it with the /etc/rc.d/pf_boot
script before starting the network. People who don't like the default
rules can override it with their own /etc/pf.boot.conf.
The default rules have been obtained from OpenBSD.
