You aren't missing anything, the module is loaded if needed.

As per 1), if ipfw is loaded as module no ipdivert functionality will be
present, you need to add both in your kernel config.

The config file is now called NOTES, and was splitted in two parts,
machine dependent and machine independent. You can generate the LINT file
with: make LINT in that same directory where NOTES is.

You can choose not to build modules by setting it in make.conf.
