What USB<-->serial adapter are you using?  I use the pl2303.

The baud rate for devices like the pl2303 is controlled in
sys/dev/usb/serial/uplcom.c, I think.

Look at uplcom.c, the comments at the top and lines 608..620.
grep uplcom_rates sys/dev/usb/serial/* -A10

You can insert your baud rate in that data structure and rebuild the
kernel or module.  Maybe.
