If your are searching a BSD like solution, you have pfsense: http://www.pfsense.org/
But what I use  IPCOP: http://www.ipcop.org/
With some addons like *BlockOutTraffic (BOT)*, SQUIDGUARD, and others

I'll 2nd the suggestion for IPCop www.ipcop.org  It's Linux, not BSD -- not my 
first OS choice, but it's a mature, feature laden product (that already has 
squid built in) that is better and more secure than something you could whip up 
yourself in a weekend.

See the doc page 
http://ipcop.org/index.php?module=pnWikka&tag=IPCopDocumentation
, particularly "features" and "software used" to get an idea of the extensive 
capabilities.

There's also m0n0wall http://m0n0.ch/wall/ that's BSD based, but very stripped 
down.

And these guys http://www.mikrotik.com/ have lots of good stuff for DIYers.
