NAT performance tweaks

Does anyone have any tweaks they apply to NAT firewalls that pass a lot 
of connections through them?  Here's the ony tweak I have in place 
already, but I'm not sure they're needed yet (or if there are any tweaks 
needed at all):

sysctl kern.ipc.somaxconn=8192

Most connections being passed through this box are http requests, mail, 
ftp, and ssh connections.

Any hints?

Eric
