OK, I found it right after I sent this. There is a sysctl switch called
net.link.ether.inet.proxyall (off by default) that enables it.
My understanding is that when a router knows a route to an ip address, it is
supposed to respond to arp who-has messages with an arp reply message giving
its own mac address. The fbsd router is not responding even though it has a
correct route, has ip forwarding enabled and is seeing the arp who-has
messages. Shouldn't it be?
