I looked at this some months ago, for a project that never came to

The best fit for our needs in a special-purpose distribution was
Mandrake's Single Network Firewall - the key factor was its inclusion
of squid, which wasn't (then) in things like Smoothwall or e-smith.

Otherwise, I would be inclined to DIY with Debian.
