FreeBSD sees network interfaces as 10Mbps

FreeBSD 5.5 and 6.2 both see the VirtualBox network interfaces as "10baseT/UTP". Attempting to change the media with ifconfig to 100baseTX or autoselect results in "invalid argument". The interface also acts as 10Mbps. It appears that the MII probe doesn't return all speeds:
pcn0: <AMD PCnet/PCI 10/100BaseTX> port 0xc020-0xc03f mem 0xf0000000-0xf0000fff irq 11 at device 3.0 on pci0 pcn0: Chip ID 2625 (Am79C973) miibus0: <MII bus> on pcn0 acphy0: <AC101 10/100 media interface> on miibus0 acphy0: 10baseT
FreeBSD 6.3-BETA1 defaults to "none" for the media and seems to be unable to receive packets.
This is with host networking. Two Linux (Debian Etch) guests report 100Mbps for the interface. NetBSD 3.1 seems to have the same issue as FreeBSD 6.3, but I was unable to test it further due to other problems. Host is Debian Etch 4.0r1 with virtualbox.org .deb.
