Jumping in to this little fray... you're exactly right. But the handbook 
for pf says to go to openbsd for "better" info on how to setup pf, which 
then has instructions using a syntax that doesn't exist on FreeBSD. This 
is not just about google searches - although users end up going there 
because of the syntax issues.

Just to clarify based on the OP thread.
