This is no longer true; he did indeed find "firewall_nat_enable"
in /etc/defaults/rc.conf. The knob seems to have first appeared
in February in HEAD and I'm guessing it cues the system to use a
new kernel-based nat rather than natd(8), but I've not read anything
further about this, as my system isn't as up to date as the OP's.
I don't know when this change was MFC'ed, but apparently fairly
I suppose we need someone a tad more "in the know" to straighten
that out for us.
A wise man can see more from a mountain top
than a fool can from the bottom of a well.
