I am not aware of a tool like this. I also encourage to do manual conversion
or (better even) start from scratch. The OpenBSD PF-FAQ is a good tutorial
to start from. It makes a better ruleset if you write it with the PF
"philosophy" in mind. I understand however, that it might be interesting to
take over long lists of individual block/pass rules. This type of rule,
however, is a prime example of how PF differs from the 3.x IPFilter since PF
comes with tables you might want to rewrite your rules there. It is hard to
do such things in an automated tool.
Please let us know if you find something helpful on the net - I didn't yet.
