Between February 16th and February 29th, something changed which causes ipnat
to fail. It may be related to whatever it is that causes ifconfig to display
incorrect settings on (at least) some cards.

For instance:

        address: 00:40:05:6a:5e:fe
        media: Ethernet autoselect (10baseT)
        inet netmask 0xff000000 broadcast

This interface is, in fact, configured differently. Each item on the third
line is shown incorrectly. This is how the interface is set after being
configured by a dhcp server.


Build -current, try to use ipnat.
