Add the amazon-ssm-agent package to EC2 AMI builds. This makes it
immediately available on instances which are running without internet access (or which can't rely on firstboot_pkgs to install it for some other reason). Note that this agent is not enabled by default; to enable it, add amazon_ssm_agent_enable="YES" to /etc/rc.conf, e.g., by placing the lines >>/etc/rc.conf amazon_ssm_agent_enable="YES" into the EC2 user-data. In addition to being enabled, the agent requires keys to be provided via IAM Roles; users are encouraged to be very careful in using this functionality due to the inherent vulnerability in the idea of providing credentials via a service accessible to any process which can open an HTTP connection. Requested by: Amazon No objection from: re@ Relnotes: FreeBSD/EC2 AMIs now include the Amazon EC2 Systems Manager (SSM) Agent.
