That's OK, everyone needs to start from somewhere.  :-)

You want to see the m0n0wall Hacker's Guide, which is linked from the 
main m0n0wall Web page.

This approach seems to work well for making modifications to an existing
m0n0wall setup (say if you want to change a few files from a working
release).  I was (sort of) able to develop my filtering bridge patches
this way.

But if you want to be able to do something similar to FreeBSD's "make
release" and build a m0n0wall release from scratch, I'm afraid that
there's no such thing.  I wish there were, but suspect that making all
of the sources available requires a bunch more time and effort on 
Manuel's part.  (He's severely short on free time now as it is.)
