The script I did for the port is available there:
In order to use it with a default tarball install (make && make install) you
have to adjust some pathes and tests. But it's a good starting point to
build a proper rc.d script for pf. It's on my TODO but with a low priority.

I agree, but I have to remind you that the port brings all the features
present in OpenBSD 3.3. So it is what they refer to as -Stable!
However, as OpenBSD 3.4 is scheduled 11-01-03 , the tarball version (which
is in sync with OpenBSD-Current) is allready stable-ish and won't see much
new features before OpenBSD 3.4.
