FreeBSD FAMP on a mini-itx/embedded platform

I'm looking to make a light FreeBSD-Apache-MySQL-PHP system out of a VIA EN 
5000 system. It would replace my home file/web server which currently runs 
24h/7d with a silent and energy-wise bundle. 

I would also like to take advange of the C7 processor's Padlock feature (SSL 
encryption). I believe FreeBSD supports it?

I'm not looking for 3D performance or the such for this file server, but I 
would expect it to atleast keep up with the current server network-wise. Are 
my expectations unfounded?

Does anyone here run FreeBSD on a VIA EN system or other embedded C7-based 



sidenote: This would be my 7th BSD machine in the house (and this is not 
counting my Vmware guests!) :)
