Ok.  So, if I can't build the latest ipf as a lkm, how should I go about this?
Any advice?  How does the ipf that "ships" with the latest NetBSD work?
How are the necessary hooks for the ipf provided at present?
Are there patches for the kernel?  Are they already applied to the source
tarball (since the ipf comes w/ netbsd) ?

Any tips on how to get this working?  I've inherited this 5000/240 and spent a
long time learning about it and getting it up.  I don't really want to abandon
it for i386.

At this level, I'm a bit of a newbie really.
