The best option is to migrate your firewall to a BSD and use PF.  See
the PF faq at http://www.openbsd.org/faq/pf/ for some info on getting

In the meantime, if short term migration is not an option, you might
want to look at something like Firewall Builder(http://www.fwbuilder.org) 
which I believe is able to generate configurations for PF, IPFW,
IPFilter and iptables from a common XML source.
