Don't attach stats to a class, attach stats to the build you are planning on using.
Some 20 point-buy samples:
Who needs AC when I have ridiculous health and saves?
Dwarf invulnerable rager barbarian
Str 16, Dex 10, Con 18, Int 8, Wis 14, Cha 8
Plan to kill the bad guys before defence matters?
Str 18, Dex 12, Con 14, Int 10, Wis 14, Cha 8
Want to use a bow alongside your melee options?
Human urban barbarian
Str 16, Dex 16, Con 14, Int 10, Wis 12, Cha 8
Abusing reach weapons?
Str 17, Dex 14, Con 14, Int 10, Wis 14, Cha 8
I want that high AC
Halfling armored hulk barbarian
Str 14, Dex 16, Con 14, Int 9, Wis 14, Cha 9
Also, feats, rage powers, and magic items are just as if not more important than your starting stats. So long as you have a decently high strength and pay some attention to your saving throws, your high health should make AC less of an issue.
