ok, this is interesting. You mean, plug the phone line straight into, say,
fxp1 ? and then using ppp to connect over PPoE to your ISP?
I had originally thought of getting a DSL card , but there doesn't seem to be
any ADSL2/2+ supported.

A phone line is RJ11 and can be only a single pair; ethernet cables which go into a fxp NIC are RJ45 and have four pairs. :-) If you wanted to connect the phone line directly, you'd rightly need to get a DSL PCI card.

However, you can connect a DSL modem into one side in bridge mode, and have the output of the DSL modem connect to a FreeBSD machine via ethernet which uses PPP to do the PPPoE/PPPoA negotiation, or you can use a "broadband router/switch" to do that, instead.
