The *only* way to do this is with Border Gateway Protocol, BGP. This
is an expensive proposition, requiring fairly expensive equipment, and
requires that you have at least a /24 (class C) address block.
Plus, way off-topic. The old inet-access archives probably have some
good discussion on this. Heck, the freebsd-questions archives has
some good discussion on this (I know, I've answered this question
again, and again, and again...)
