Possible Bug in bridge.c (depends on IPFILTER)

For the past week I have been unable to compile the kernel with certain options. I have finally narrowed down the problem.

Specifying the build option "options BRIDGE" requires "options IPFILTER" to also be present. /usr/src/sys/net/bridge/bridge.c makes reference to the external function fr_checkp() (Line 210) defined in ipfilter and so the kernel will not link unless IPFILTER is also defined.

I removed the external reference and replaced it by a static function that returns zero. This solved the build problem but doesn't solve the actual issue, unfortunately I do not understand the code well enough to offer a correct patch for the problem.

As a side point the link to this forum on http://www.dragonflybsd.org/main/bugs.cgi is incorrect. nntp://news.dragonflybsd.org/dragonfly.bugs should be nntp://nntp.dragonflybsd.org/dragonfly.bugs.
