/boot.config is toggling around with the serial console for the boot 
loader and the bootup process.
/etc/ttys is needed to enable a serial console after the bootprocess is 
finished. Thing of something like a getty in Linux running on ttyS0 ...

at least this is how I understood serial consoles in FreeBSD-4 ...

If I was wrong, I'm sure somebody on this list would correct me ;)
