It's not on by default. It's not currently even built by default. Scroll down:
- Tor now has initial support for automatic port mapping on the many
home routers that support NAT-PMP or UPnP. (Not yet supported on
Windows). To build the support code, you'll need to have libnatpnp
library and/or the libminiupnpc library, and you'll need to enable the
feature specifically by passing "--enable-upnp" and/or
"--enable-natpnp" to configure. To turn it on, use the new
tor-talk mailing list
