i believe the instructions for a build of m0n0bsd are still available on 
m0n0.ch. additionally, you may want to take a look at 
/usr/src/release/picobsd on a freebsd system to see if tweaking picobsd 
could assist.

exactly my thought process. before embarking on this however, i'd like to 
be sure that usng FreeBSD 6.0 is what the m0n0 users want. since 
performance seems to be the main beef blocking a move to 6.0, the 1.3aX 
releases are prototypes to see if we can address the performance issue 
before converting the rest of the m0n0wall architecture to what freebsd 6.x 
has to offer. a lot of this would be necessary anyways as older features 
which m0n0wall currently uses are deprecated.
