Thanks, at least this is a hint. That shows on my system:
$ conscontrol list
and sysctl kern.console is / (not that I know what that means).
Then I try this:
$ conscontrol add /dev/console
conscontrol: could not add console as a console: Device not configured
$ conscontrol add /dev/consolectl
conscontrol: could not add consolectl as a console: Device not configured
Is that the expected behavior? What else I might try?
