sio0 is COM1, and it is found.  mse0 is for a busmouse, which you do not
have (you have a serial mouse, since it's plugged into COM1).

Unless you're running a -CURRENT from 3 or so months ago to now, you won't
have any mouse pointer in text mode at all.  The only mousepointer is in X
Windows.  (X, of course, must be properly configured to use the mouse, but
you don't mention that as being a problem).
