I don't... but I'm sure there are.  I don't remember actually seeing
any.  Anyone one from pfSense onlist might know... cmb?

What *did* you find?

You could also (crazily) try some usb NICs.. .there's some that have
decent support, even if it's a pretty bad idea in general.

FBSD ARM has some heavy changes right now... there are regular breaks in
HEAD and in 10 stable.. so playing?  Yes.  Production?  not quite.

I think also GNN has been buying less-known ARM boards pretty regularly.
