    IT looks like quagga just has a more active development community and supports a few more protocols than zebra, the supported protocols will be listed in the associated links.

    Most of the "firewall" linux distros will also offer routing functionality. I'm fond of vyatta, mostly because the also offer a hardware option, and a VM (gret for inter-VLAN routing in a large VM environment).

    Also, something to consider is what kind of hardware you intend to use. For example, if you can / want to use a small device, there's always OpenWRT, Tomato, DDWRT, FreeWRT, etc.

    Another interesting project to look at is Mikrotik (not completely free).

    Also, Wikipedia has a pretty comprehensive list:
