I'm in Brazil. Overseas shipping is really expensive, almost impossible :-(

 Alternatively, it might be practical to chop out the switch and wire
in a small toggle switch to hide somewhere.

I can try to do something like that myself, but I have poor hardware fixing skills. I'll probably ask one of my electronic colleagues for help. Anyway, I'll probably first try to a software workaround, probably changing the NetBSD kernel. Since OpenBSD seemed to boot fine, I'm in hope of making it work with NetBSD.
