I use amd for doing just this.  it works for most cases.  My map file looks like
cdrom   type:=cdfs;dev:=/dev/acd0c;addopts:=ro
floppy  type:=pcfs;dev:=/dev/fd0
zip     type:=ufs;dev:=/dev/da0s1a
pczip   type:=pcfs;dev:=/dev/da0s4
pczipF  type:=pcfs;dev:=/dev/da0
flash   type:=pcfs;dev:=/dev/da0s1

(minus the NFS filesystems)

This works for everything but the type:=ufs.  When amd mounts a unix filesystem
it will never unmount it.  I had to patch amd to unmount ufs.

My amd.conf is the default.  The parameters for amd are:
        /usr/sbin/amd -p -a /.amd_mnt -l syslog /u /etc/amd.u
