Put pfSense on a Netgear UTM5 Firewall

Hi! I got a UTM 5 Firewall for my server room. I'm bored paying for all the software fee, so I want to install pfSense on it instead. Is this possible?
Looks like it's a MIPS processor so no. :(

If it's a CN5010, then, given that we've made a Ubiquiti ERL work, it should be possible to make the Netgear UTM5 work.
I can't find any direct reference for the UTM5 but the UTM10 seems use a CN5010 and they share the same firmware so it seems likely.
I'm sure it would please quite a few people to have pfSense running on those Netgear boxes but it seems like it would require significant work for zero return. I'd love to be proved wrong though. ;)
