Okay, I've figure it out.
natd is not starting via rc.conf, or if it is, it dies. I can
start it manually, and it works okay.
Also it seems that for some reason some of my ipfw rules don't
get set, so I have to rerun ipfw also to make things work.
I'll just hack the rc scripts to get this machine up.
