what version of freeBSD?

in -current you can implement a routing table via FWD and tables.
in  6.x you need to specify the next hop. and an more explicit rule.

the fwd rule is a terminal rule.. (processing does not continue, however
while divert is a termianl rule, the natd reinjects the packet back into the 
firewall at eh rule number AFTER thr rule that did the divert,
so you can treat it as if it was non terminating.

this means that you need to do the NAT before you do the FWD.
