I got confused, I thought DragonflyBSD had something like 
"" from FreeBSD, but then I discovered that that 
sysctl setting wasn't implemented until FreeBSD 12.x

What got me confused is, it turns out pfctl truly couldn't allocate the 
memory for some reason when I first tried loading the ruleset, but on a 
later attempt it worked perfectly.

Sorry for the noise.
