Soekris has announced the 5501: http://www.soekris.com/net5501.htm

that board is available elsewhere for less.

The WAR1-CPE is really a Compex WP54.
The WAR4-METRO is a a Compex WP188.
Both of these come from Computex, and Valemont charges a huge uplift  
for them.

The WAR2-G2 and WAR4-G1 are gateworks boards.   FreeBSD runs on  
these, as long as you have a CF socket on the board.
Valemount still changes a huge uplift.   Why do you recommend them?

work is underway to put pfSense on the gateworks ixp425 boards.

As stated, freebsd runs, the problem has been getting various "ports"  
to run through the cross-compiler.

details here: http://www.mail-archive.com/discussion at pfsense dot com/ 

Getting m0n0wall to run on the same hardware should be straight-forward.
