0x27 is indeed the config address, and auto does work as well.

I discovered the solution took the form of adding
"machdep.pccard.mem_start=0xd0000" to /etc/sysctl.conf

The card now works fine :)

Can someone with the ability add the card description to the official
pccard.conf distribution file?

Also, apart from searching high and low on mailing lists, is the sysctl
variable mentioned anywhere else, like a FAQ or in a setup script
or something? it's not exactly the first thing that came to mind when
trying to get this thing working...
