 I'm pretty sure I installed an amd64 machine by booting from a -current image
 from the releng cluster just a few weeks ago, which worked flawlessly and 
 autodetected the CD just fine. Did this change recently for you?
 The main difference between amd64 and i386 (despite the identical bootloader)
 here is that the i386 CD has / on cd0a, which makes the probe for CD and
 sets void, while amd64 uses the built in md0a image, so has to realy find
 the CD.
 Can you boot the image into sysinst, use the utility menu to start a shell
 and show me the output of
    disklabel cd0
 (or other cd1, if cd0 does not work/has no medium) please?
