Hi,

Alright, so I am an idiot. I should have done what you always do and
first test with a disabled firewall instead of banging my head against
the network config for three days. Things work fine with the firewall
out of the way.

The hint that got me there came from the dnsmasq FAQ. It mentions that
the ISC dhcpd (from which the OpenBSD dhcpd is derived) may bypass the
kernel firewall entirely.
