Hello Panagiotes,
    Please call pfctl from $PATH -- don't hardcode the path, ever.
I'll be looking at making "make check" more developer friendly in the
next 3-6 months, so running "make check" from usr.sbin/pf/... will
automatically add a set path/environment which hooks in to *.test.mk.
The goal of this is to simplify developer use for "make check".
    Also, if the tests (for whatever reason) aren't going to be
installed alongside pfctl, e.g., tests/sys/pf/... please add 'atf_set
"require.progs" "pfctl"' to the header to ensure that the test is
skipped if/when pfctl isn't installed on the system.
