I have corresponded with a few people recently who are having issues
installing NetBSD because there is no AHCI install media provided on
the ftp site.
Could we enable it by default like in i386, or at least provide a
CDROM image with AHCI support?

This affects me as well, as the kernel can't even find the vga adapter
without AHCI.  However, I build my own releases, so it's not a problem
for me.  Less experienced/enthusiastic users--especially new ones--may
be dissuaded by this issue.
