That would be a bug in the makefile, those files should have been copied 
to /usr/local/etc.  If they are not, then yes, you need to create the 
dir and put those files in it (they should be in the wifidog root directory)

It is the opposite here: ExternalInterface if the one that sees the 
internet and GatewayInterface is the one wifi clients are connecting to

That is all, no need to set Firewall, it should be good to go.
