What version are you running? It matters.

In 4.x, add,

  *.*                                             /var/log/ipfwlog

To get just ipfw messages. But the line,

  security.*                                      /var/log/security

In the default syslog.conf that comes with 4.x should catch all
ipfw messages too.
