Does the system (or better, its "enclosure", software-wise)
allow booting a rescue system or an emergency media, such
as a FreeBSD v9 live system?

The file /etc/freebsd-update.conf should contain the line

        Components src world kernel

if you want to make sure the source is properly updated,
along with the world and kernel (GENERIC).

Does this mean "SSH only" or do you have a _real_ console
transmission by which you can access the system _prior_ to
the OS providing the SSH access? I'm mentioning this because
the traditional approach requires (few) steps done in the
single-user mode where no SSH connectivity is provided in
the "normal" way...
