Perhaps there's something wrong in the branch at present...?
Doubtful, I guess.

Hmmm... Well that all seems OK, then.
The only other thing I can think of is that the
'router_enable'="YES"' line's creating dramas.
As I understand it, this'll cause /etc/rc.d/routed to attempt to
launch the routing daemon specified by a 'router="..."' line,
which you don't appear to have. I don't think this'd interfere
with natd anyway, but I don't really understand what the hell's
going on in /etc/rc.d/routed.
Sorry I can't be more helpful!
