        The packet filter (pf) is now installed with the base system. Make
        sure to run mergemaster -p before installworld to create required
        user account ("proxy"). If you do not want to build pf with your
        system you can use the NO_PF knob in make.conf.
        Also note that pf requires "options PFIL_HOOKS" in the kernel. The
        pf system consists of the following three devices:
        device          pf              # required
        device          pflog           # optional
        device          pfsync          # optional
