load: 0.95 cmd: sysctl 110 [running] 2.51m(micro) 12.00s 0% 436k ( here is
output from ctrl-t )

I did like sugested before , hanging point is:
[ -w /dev/random ]
feed_dev_random /entropy
[ -f /entropy -a -r /entropy -a -s /entropy ]
cat /entropy
dd of=/dev/random bs=8k
dd of=/dev/random bs=8k
ps -fauxww
sysctl -a

Actually what I forgot to tell in my previous mail what sysctl -a stoped
working for me, but now I see what this is actually and IS the problem.
if I do sysctl -a from console the last things what its output is:
net.inet.ipf.fr_minttl: 3
net.inet.ipf.fr_minttllog: 1
thats it , here I have to press ctrl-c

and also part of my custom kernel, I tried to commend RANDOM_IP_ID,
PFIL_HOOKS but I got same results :

options         INCLUDE_CONFIG_FILE
options         IPFIREWALL              #firewall
options         IPFIREWALL_VERBOSE      #enable logging to syslogd(8)
options         IPFIREWALL_FORWARD      #enable transparent proxy support
options         IPFIREWALL_DEFAULT_TO_ACCEPT    #allow everything by default
options         IPV6FIREWALL            #firewall for IPv6
options         IPV6FIREWALL_VERBOSE
options         IPDIVERT                #divert sockets
options         IPFILTER                #ipfilter support
options         IPFILTER_LOG            #ipfilter logging
options         IPSTEALTH               #support for stealth forwarding
options         PFIL_HOOKS
options         TCPDEBUG
options         RANDOM_IP_ID
options         TCP_DROP_SYNFIN         #drop TCP packets with SYN+FIN
options         DUMMYNET
options         BRIDGE
options         DEVICE_POLLING

When it hangs, please press <ctrl>-T, and report back the status line that
you get in response.
