It seems a discussion of amd (amtools port) is missing from this
discussion.  This would be the gui-less way of doing it, but it mounts
when you cd to the appropriate folder, not on boot.

These are good discussions:

except for, in 7.0 (6.3?) the rc.conf setup has changed:

amd_flags="-a /.amd_mnt -c 10 -w 2 -l syslog /host /etc/"
