This is what I thought. Unfortunately, doing anything about this is
beyond my skill level by a goodly margin.

I have some of each, so we will see :).

I should have said RELENG_5_>3. I know some thing, in general, not
specifically pf-related, are being held back until 6.0. I just wanted
to be sure these weren't included with those.

Thanks for your quick response. Too bad about bridging. I know that's
outside your realm. In the worst case, though, I would run OpenBSD on
those machines and even that may not be necessary, so really the
problem is minimal.
