I agree with you, building old PC's with Linux + iptables or OpenBSD +
pf, both with OpenSSH, has been hassle free for years, on my own end, as
long as the hardware can continue with some more beating. More
flexibility and much easier to maintain in the long run, despite the
learning curve of keeping it as tight as possible, security wise.
Linuxrouter.org died though a few years back, it forked to LEAF:
The Bering-uClibc branch is the most up-to-date with the 2.4.31 kernel.
Soekris http://www.soekris.com/products.htm makes excellent mainboards
for customized routers, especially for BSD and Linux.
