What is your pf.conf like?  Do you have ALTQ in use?  Do you maybe try to use 
ALTQ on an interface that is created later on (tun0 or the like)?  What does 
"/etc/rc.d/{pf, pflog} rcvar" give you?  Does "/etc/rc.d/pf start" work after 
it failed on boot?  Try setting pf_flags="-v" to get additional error
