Just to follow up on this...

The 8139c+ is now handled in FreeBSD by the "re" driver.  Firing up
1.2b7detects this correctly (including the MAC address).  And it's not
device ID
1400, which is weird, but a standard vendor and device ID...

This now leaves me one of 3 choices:
1) use 1.2b7
2) backport the re driver to 4.11 from 5.4 or 6.0.
3) wait for a newer ver of M0n0wall based on FreeBSD 6
