It's part of the base system:

# which amd

[54] Mon 18.Aug.2008 14:53:05
[kadmin at archangel][~] 
# whereis amd
amd: /usr/sbin/amd /usr/share/man/man8/amd.8.gz /usr/src/usr.sbin/amd

 ... and, according to the manpage, has been since before FreeBSD
existed.  CVS seems to concur, with the initial revision of amd.c
being committed by rgrimes@ on May 26, 1994.
