Is the serial port enabled (BIOS & kernel)?
Do you get positive output when you do
$ cat /var/run/dmesg.boot | grep "sio[[:digit:]]"
sio0 at port 0x3f8-0x3ff irq 4 flags 0x10 on isa0
sio0: type 16550A
sio1 at port 0x2f8-0x2ff irq 3 on isa0
sio1: type 16550A
ttyd0 "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600" dialup off secure
means first serial port; cable is connected to that port?
