 From what I have gathered the handbook is getting out of date - 
particularly in this area. Try the IPFW list (they're very helpful and 
rather quick to respond), but try checking the scripts in /etc first. 
Man should be up to date too.

You should find some generic settings such as OPEN, SECURE, etc in the 
scripts /etc. Just set the rc.conf to use those, and season to taste ;)
