[ultraviolet at samael:~ %] cat /usr/src/sys/i386/conf/LINT| grep -i "IPFILTER"
options         IPFILTER                #ipfilter support
options         IPFILTER_LOG            #ipfilter logging
options         IPFILTER_DEFAULT_BLOCK  #block all packets by default

Something along those lines? ;)

(lynx || links || less) /usr/src/sys/i386/conf/LINT
And press '/' to search for things ;) 

Anyway, for the rest, use uncle google, http://www.google.com/

I believe this is what you're looking for, goodluck.
