If that's the approach you want to take, just run pfSense and don't use the
extra features it has.  :)

The quickest way to move M0n0wall to FreeBSD 6.1 may be to look at the dev
notes for FreeNAS, since that developer has already done it, but with a
different aim...  (No firewall features are needed on a NAS, so that made
things easier I'm sure)

If this is the case, isn't the quickest way of getting m0n0wall on
FreeBSD 6.1 just to cut out everything that pfSense has added until it
has feature parity with current m0n0wall?
