​What's listed in the Handbook, of course.  :)  There's a whole chapter
(25) just for Serial Communications.  That's what I used to configure
things way back when.  These are taken from my notes for my FreeBSD 9.x

### Serial console settings ###
boot_multicons="yes"               # Same as -D in /boot.config
boot_serial="yes"                  # Same as -h in /boot.config
console="comconsole vidconsole"    # Enable video and serial consoles
comconsole_speed="115200"          # The serial port baud rate
comconsole_port="0x3E8"            # The serial port address
hint.uart.2.flags="0x30"           # Enable keyboard support on serial

# Serial terminals
# The 'dialup' keyword identifies dialin lines to login, fingerd etc.
ttyu0   "/usr/libexec/getty std.115200"   vt100   onifconsole secure

​I'm not sure if you still need to recompile the kernel to get baud rates
above 9600.  You may need to use 9600 instead of 115200 above.
