You've not told us what version of NetBSD you're using.  That's
important information.

(It's also important that your ipfilter-related userland bits closely
match the vintage of your kernel.  i.e. if you're running a 1.4.2
kernel, you _need_ to be using 1.4.2 ipfilter-related bits.  1.4.1 or
1.4 likely won't work.  Ipfilter is ... not so good about backward
compatiblity.  *sigh*)
