Frequently Asked Questions for FreeBSD 6.X, 7.X and 8.X
Chapter 15 Serial Communications

The 8.0 FAQ has to be updated to reflect new serial port names.

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.

Waiting for marcel@ (the maintainer of uart(4)) to answer my email 
regarding the details, because many parts of the FAQ should be rewritten 
(or extended).

Did marcel ever answer your questions about this? Can you sure the
