/var/log/security is the default place ipfw logs.  I just checked my kernel
conf file and found you need this line to include logging:

options         IPFIREWALL_VERBOSE      #enable logging to syslogd(8)

If you don't have it, add it and recompile.

You're welcome.  I know how frustrating it can be.  But when you get it
right, it's all worth it.  :)
