Yes, this is easy.
The "ipmasqadm" command does this - basically, you get the external
side of the firewall to adopt all the relevant IP numbers (virtual
interfaces), and then you use something like "ipmasqadm portfw -a -P
tcp -L external_address 80 -R internal_address 80" for each host you
want a port mapped through for.
