I decided to wait to see if the file would appear, but it didn't.
Tried GRC "Shields Up" to make sure some packets would be logged,
still nothing.  Read in the ipf-howto that I needed to run ipmon.
Thought about another script in rc.d then wondered if there was
anything in /etc/defaults/rc.conf :)  Should've looked there first!

All is well now, thanks.

Yes that's magic; but I was wondering about a way to also update
the /etc/ipnat.rules file so that all would be well after a reboot.
