when i updated from fbsd82 to fbsd90 using buildworld, buildkernel, 
installkernel, reboot, installworld, mergemaster, and make check-old, then 
packet filter simply did not load.  others on the list had the same 
problem.  i do not recall if it was specific to amd64.

now that i have updated from fbsd90 to fbsd91rc, ipv6 of packet filter is 
broken.  i can not connect to ipv6 services.  nmap run against the machine 
reports per usual with -4 flag and using -6 flag reports no opened ports. 
ssh and auth should be open.  i substituted a very simple pf.conf and got 
the same result.

i think that there is no troubleshooting to be done, but if you want 
further information then i will send it.
