Can someone affirmatively verify that this part (30.6.1) of the
Handbook is correct? Particularly the last sentence.
IPFW is included in the basic FreeBSD install as a
separate run time loadable module. The system will
dynamically load the kernel module when the rc.conf
statement firewall_enable="YES" is used. There is no need
to compile IPFW into the FreeBSD kernel unless NAT
functionality is desired.
