I believe what you read in Wikipedia may be out of date. Someone correct me 
if I'm wrong, but I seem to recall that IPX was dropped from FreeBSD and is 
no longer supported. The code went unmaintained for too long and succumbed 
to bit rot, so eventually it was pulled.

What I am unclear about is exactly when this happened. It wasn't all that 
long ago.
