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.
