Is there any way, by poking through dmesg or sysctls, to determine if a

Well, the sysutils/dmidecode port can be used to answer that question:

pi# dmidecode -t memory
# dmidecode 2.8
SMBIOS 2.3 present.

Also, is there an easy way to silence the following warnings in dmesg?
They all appear to be about the serial and parallel ports, which, as far
as I know, the machine does have. They may not be enabled in the BIOS,

I think those messages only appear if you do a verbose boot...?
