I investigated yet some more, and I'm starting to wonder if somehow the
npf kernel module is erroneously getting automatically unloaded.

I found that if I add the following to /etc/rc.local, NPF will behave
correctly (i.e. it will be loaded and running after boot):

/sbin/modunload npf
/sbin/modload npf
/sbin/npfctl reload
/sbin/npfctl start

This NetBSD machine is very ordinary; it's a generic kernel; I haven't
added any custom kernel modules, etc.

I also tested this on another amd64 NetBSD 6.1.4 machine, a VMware
virtual machine, and it exhibits the same problem.
