Not sure about this actually, but I know that the atapicam driver is not in 
GENERIC kernel (the one installed by normal FreeBSD, and the one the config 
file is shipped with freebsd's sources also on Gentoo/FreeBSD), and it's 
neither commented out on the config file or in FreeBSD's handbook:
Also, eject-1.5 (the eject command installed by ports) doesn't use CAM but 
uses CDIO to do the eject.

As cam doesn't work "out of the box", I think I'll start looking at ioctl to 
improve it.
