Can I use divert as an alternative to ipfw fwd?

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I would like to lead some traffic through a transparent proxy (which actually is on another server and connected with an ssh tunnel). Normally I could do this: ipfw add forward localhost,8080 tcp from any to x.x.x.x 80 However, fwd/forward needs a re-compile of the kernel, which I am not happy to do. Therefore, I'm searching for a solution that doesn't need a recompile. For example, could I somehow use a divert socket to implement this? Or are there any other basic good solutions? (HowTos)
