No. IPFW is available via a loadable kernel module. Just add firewall_enable="YES" to /etc/rc.conf, choose your firewall type from /etc/rc.firewall and add firewall_type="FOO" also to /etc/rc.conf plus write yourself a custom ruleset if you need something other than one of the prepackaged ones. Then reboot and test. However, beware that the default setting without any firewall rules installed is 'block everything via the network', so make sure you've got console access when setting this up. Also, I'd definitely recommend using PF rather than IPFW. Mostly that's personal preference, but I've used both IPFW and PF quite extensively, and IMHO PF blows IPFW out of the water.
