Base system utilities generally don't have a separate version number --
other than the SVN revision numbers of their source code files.  Just
track them by the version of the OS.

Hmmm... if you're asking about the ipfw1 -> ipfw2 update, that is pretty
ancient history now.  AFAIR it was current around 5.3-RELEASE.  Maybe
even earlier.  All those changes were merged into the base system a long
time ago now, and you can safely assume that you're on ipfw2.

There have been some subsequent changes to ipfw which may involve
modified ways of doing certain things -- I'm thinking of the in-kernel
NAT features for example.  This sort of change is best tracked through
the Release Notes for new FreeBSD versions.
