Autofs has been integrated into FreeBSD 6.

There is also a standalone tarball that will compile and run on
FreeBSD 5 as well as FreeBSD 4.

The most recent one is available here:

If you want to get an idea on how to use it, see the libautofs.3

You can also check out the example driver program under
/usr/share/examples/autofs/driver (under FreeBSD 6) or the driver/
directory (from the tarball).

If you want to use the tarball, just extract it and run
  make depend all install
from the top level directory.

Have fun!  AMD guys, let me know where we go from here!

The only thing I have not implemented is trigger timeouts inside
the autofs.  I'll get to it eventually though.
