IPFW won't go away!

Thanks for your responses so far. 


I have tried explicitly tried to disable it using: ipfw_enable="NO" and
firewall_enable="NO" in /etc/rc.conf


My kernel configuration file doesn't contain any IPFIREWALL options.  I did
try adding "options IPFIREWALL_DEFAULT_TO_ACCEPT" and recompiling/installing
but that didn't work.


Despite all of this it still loads up and by blocks everything! - this means
I have to type "ipfw disable firewall" at every boot.  I would prefer if it
wasn't there taking up cpu cycles.
