I thought the speedtouch (at least the old speedtouch home I used to have)
had PPTP functionality.

So that the external IP could be given to the NIC that the speedtouch is
plugged into.

In short: same problem here.
setup 1: monowall coneecting with PPTP to speedtouch. Would not know what
remote IP I should use. setup 2: monowall NATing and speedtouch NATing. One
way to make sure that everything you could make to work through the firewall
that comes close to connection tracking will fail (active ftp and such)
setup 3: setup the monowall to remain silent and bridge anything. One way 
do it you need sip-spoof and a weird broadcast/netmask. Monowall is using
the realworld external IP directly.

Setup2 is working, but won't make me happy. Setup 1 or 3 should work if I
only knew how... It is almost enough to replace monowall.

Do you mean to say "forget about stuff like active ftp, a passive ftp server
behind the monowall router, irc and msn functionality through monowall"?

If you want to change monowall to see if it is possible to make it work you
will want to know if you can set the network using ifconfig/route. It seems
like it will never work with FreeBSD 4.9 form what I tried last friday. But

Double NAT seems the source for many problems to me...
Some kind of p2p connection to an unknown external IP-adres?
