Turn off serial console on boot

I have some servers with IPMI that allow me to have a serial console. I
have setup a serial console config on my servers and it seems to work
reasonably well in remote emergencies, but causes serious problems if I
ever have to use the real console.
It means that I can't use single user mode from the real console and I
can't see most boot errors.
Is there a way I can turn off the console redirection from the physical
console interactively on startup?
Running FreeBSD 7.
barium# cat /boot.config
barium# cat /boot/loader.conf
