Thanks both for the suggestions.  I tried:
ipmon_flags="-Dsn" and ipmon_flags="-oi /var/log/ipflog"
to no avail.  I even read man ipmon!

As far as I can tell ipmon is not starting via rc.conf.
If I start it manually with:
ipmon -P -D -oi /var/log/ipflog it works (although I don't
see a PID in /var/run even if I leave out the -D).

The FM could do with updating as it also says:
   In order for ipmon to properly work, the kernel option
   IPFILTER_LOG must be turned on in your kernel.  Please
   see options(4) for more details.

There is no IPFILTER_LOG kernel option mentioned in GENERIC
or NOTES and there is no options(4) man page (FreeBSD-5.2.1).

Woohoo :) Just found a PR and a fix:
