 I've read through the Handbook chapter on this.  I've done the process
 I've used with 8.x systems.  But once the kernel loads, the serial
 console stops working.  I'm obviously missing a step somewhere.

 Here's what I've done.  Please point out my error(s):

 /boot/loader.conf:
    hint.uart.0.disabled=0
    hint.uart.0.flags=0x30
    console=comconsole vidconsole
    comconsole_speed=115200
    boot_multicons=yes

 /etc/make.conf:
BOOT_COMCONSOLE_PORT=0x3F8
BOOT_COMCONSOLE_SPEED=115200

Nevermind.  PEBCAK error.  Adding the right port address would work.
Amazing how easy it is to mixup a 3 and an E.  :(

I'll hang my head in shame now.  :(

steps..  :-)

Are you referring to the .flags value or the BOOT_COMCONSOLE_PORT value?

 Thanks,

Both.

The BIOS is configured to use COM3 for the remote access support, with
an address of 3E8.

The kernel sees COM3 as uart0 with an address of 0x3e8.

Me, in my infinite copy/paste wisdom set loader.conf and make.conf to use 3F8.

Figured that one out by dropping to a loader prompt and reading
through the output of show and manually setting the hint.uart.0.port
correctly.  Then setting it in loader.conf and make.conf correctly
afterward.

Sorry, not the .flags value, that was set correctly.

The .port value.
