The 8.0 handbook has to be updated to reflect new serial port names.
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/handbook/install-post.html shows the sysinstall menu for configuring the mouse. Mouse dev name has changed in 8.0.
From the 8.0 release notes is the following
[amd64, i386] The uart(4) is now the default driver for serial port devices in favor of the sio(4) driver. Note that the device nodes have been renamed with /dev/cuauN and /dev/ttyuN.
How-To-Repeat: Just read the 8.0 handbook about config mouse and you will see 7.2 /dev node names shown
I work on it.
The error is in sysinstall/devices.c which has to be fixed first.
That completed pr fixes what your been waiting for.
So now handbook can be fixed per this pr.
For bugs that match the following

I did a quick pass but if you are getting this email it might be worthwhile to double check to see if this bug ought to be closed.
