I'm not really plugged into the FreeBSD community, but the above does
not look promising for pfSense on WRT-type routers.

Beyond the issue of getting the kernel to boot, pfSense's disk image
size and memory usage are also a bit rich for the platform (typical
4MB flash and 16MB ram).

It really would be nice, though. I've always wondered why none of
these embedded board vendors ships BSD-based firmware, since they seem
to have so much trouble complying with the GPL...
