Sure, when FreeBSD's default becomes to compile pf into the kernel or load
it by BTX, that makes sense. Otherwise it doesn't.

What do you mean with default?

None of the the firewalls available with FreeBSD (ipfw, ipf, pf) is
part of the GENERIC Kernel. But many users will compile the firewall
of their choise into their CUSTOM kernels.

For ipfw and ipf this can be done either with "default to accept" or
"default to deny" ploicy by adding the option


to the custom kernel configruation file.
