ipfilter_enable is still an option in rc.conf.

I'm not sure, but 5.3-BETA3 does require PFIL_HOOKS. The change made to 
-CURRENT to always include PFIL_HOOKS (and thus remove it as a kernel option) 
was made after RELENG_5 was branched, and the commit log doesn't mention 
merging that change to RELENG_5.
