custom release, serial console as default?

I'm working on creating what I'm calling quickstart for obsd, similar 
to jumpstart for Solaris or kickstart for RedHat Linux.  I'm at the 
point of having a script that finds all network interfaces on boot, 
then looks for first with status active, and then tries to configure it 
via dhcp, loops until all 3 of those conditions are positive.  Then 
this script tries to download the rest of the process, again looping 
until true.

What I would really like is to have the console be on the serial port.  
Sure I can type 'set tty com0' at the boot> prompt, but this is a hands 
off automated install.  I don't have a lot of knowledge of about the 
whole make release process.  I am wondering how do I get an 
/etc/boot.conf file to exist in the bsd kernel image that is used when 
a release is made?

Thanks in advance for any pointers.
