I can reproduce this with my m0n0wall at home (FreeBSD
client/PPPoE/ADSL) too. The problem doesn't seem to be that MSS
clamping is not working, but rather that NetBSD sends packets larger

blocked by ipfilter for some reason.
Turning off timestamps in the FreeBSD client (sysctl
net.inet.tcp.rfc1323=0) makes it work.
This is probably related:
