It is an error from ipmasq executable which is called from fwctl. It means
you dont have masquerading in the kernel. From 0.25-4 on the exit status of
ipmasq command is ignored if you clean the rules (flush) so you can actually
use fwctl on a system without masq support. But of course in tht case you
should not use -masq rules.

In case i am wrog with my answer please inform me.
