The only relevant difference to an OpenBSD log I see is the ",www" port. Everything else (ipf, ipchains, iptables) logs the port number numerically. So the regexps assume that port numbers are \d+ (numeric).

There are two options:
- Don't call ipmon with "-n"
- Change the '?(\d*)'-s in line 279 (under 7 and 9) of to   '?(\w*)' so fwanalog accepts letters on this position.

I think the first way is better as Analog does a better job resolving IP addresses and port numbers (using the nmap config) than your kernel. (Resolving IPs shouldn't be the job of a firewall, anyway.)

What is the default setting on NetBSD? -n or not?

This was the only problem I've found, aside from that, the OpenBSD parser works perfectly.

Please delete everything from the $outdir before you try it again, and make sure that you only give ipflogs to fwanalog which were created without "-n".

I hope this helps
