It's good to see pf moving to a wider platform audience. Over half of my boxen are running Solaris maybe someday I'll see it there as well.

    If I ever get a NetBSD box going I'll be sure to try this out.

      Does this mean you have problems getting a NetBSD box going?

    While I'm quite happy with Darren Reed's IPFilter, there are some nice looking features in pf that I wouldn't mind having. I'd rather stick with Net than move to Open (I've too many NetBSD machines of varying architectures to consider a complete switch), so this porting work is very welcome. And of course, there's the possibility of more people working on pf, which can only be a positive thing.
