When you set firewall_type="/etc/ipfw.rules" in your rc.conf, only the
following commands are run by rc.firewall:

        ipfw -f flush
        ipfw /etc/ipfw.rules

That's all.  If you want the rules to have similar behavior to some of
the rules listed for open/closed/client/simple, you'll have to copy
the appropriate rules from rc.firewall into your /etc/ipfw.rules file.
