Exchanging the UART driver was also a reason, as far as
I know. The "conventional" serial driver can still be
compiled into the kernel, but it isn't the default
anymore since sometime in the 6- branch.

I think "sh MAKEDEV" would be the correct call. Anyway,
the /dev file system is a virtual file system now controlled
by the devfs and devd system services. There is no need
for the MAKEDEV script anymore.
You could try to add a line like
link cuad0 cuaa0
to /etc/devfs.conf and then
# /etc/rc.d/devfs restart
but I may be possible that the program you're intending to
use does require the "conventional" serial driver that would
create /dev/cuaa* entries.
See the related man pages for more details.
