... and ipl, as configured stock, requires INET6. Compile your kernel with
INET6 or manually compile the ipfilter module to remove the requirement:

cd /sys/modules/ipfilter
make cleandir
make obj
make -DNOINET6
make install

You'll have to do this anytime you rebuild your kernel, unless you add a
line to /etc/make.conf like


but I'm not sure what effect that will have on other code.
