src/usr.sbin/npf/npftest/libnpftest/npf_table_test.c revision 1.5
introduced a change where a static const array (ip6_list) had portions
of the array populated using htons().

This will have fixed some endian bugs in the test.  However, compilation
of this code with optimisation -O0 now fails since ntohs() is replaced
with the bswap16() function from libc instead of a constant expression.

SuS v4 just says that ntohs() can be a macro not that it has to be so
probably they ought not to be used in a constant intialization context.


Attempt to compile npf_table_test.c with COPTS = -O0.

/usr/src/usr.sbin/npf/npftest/libnpftest/npf_table_test.c:28:6: error: 
initializer element is not constant
      htons(0xfe80), 0x0, 0x0, 0x0,
/usr/src/usr.sbin/npf/npftest/libnpftest/npf_table_test.c:28:6: error: (near 
initialization for 'ip6_list[0][0]')


At least 2 ways to fix.

1. Define 2 versions of the array for each endianness and select at
   compile time.
2. Make the table non-const and initialize it prior to running the test at

Probably other options but those seem fairly obvious.
