yes, your kernel contains the iptable_tproxy module built in, so you don't
need to load it explicitly. However Zorp detects whether you have tproxy
support by attempting to load a module. This will change in the future, but
currently it won't recognize your system as one with tproxy support. (squid
might do it differently)
