Apart from the Sangoma which is hardly low cost, there aren't any
that I know of.
Most cost effective way to do this is to go for one of the many
external Ethernet/DSL bridges then run PPP/PPPoE on the OpenBSD box.
I've had good results with the Netgear DM602 *in "Modem" mode* for
this purpose. OK, it's a two box solution but does leave your OpenBSD
box with control over the PPP session and the external IP address on
it's tun0 interface.
As much as it stinks, unless you are running on very old hardware or
doing lots of other things on the box then the extra overhead of
userland PPP/pppoe and back out to Ethernet is miniscule (<<5% CPU
utilisation on a 600Mhz VIA Eden sinking data from a 2Mb/s ADSL at
