logs not in /var/log/messages

Hi, I see no logged entries from ipfw in messages.
What am I doing wrong?  I didn't touch the rc.firewall "simple" section.

and in rc.conf I did specify to use "simple"

1. Is your firewall running? Do you get the rule set if you type 'ipfw -a
list'?

2. Do you have the following option in your kernel configuration file (with
a recompiled kernel)?

options         IPFIREWALL_VERBOSE

3. Are you sure you've had any denied packets?

1. How large can /var/log/messages and /var/log/syslog get ?

My /var/log/messages is now over 3 meg, and my syslog is 200+ k. I'm
very curious how far is this going to go ?
Is there a way to restrict their sizes ?

cheers,
Hong Siang.
