In the dmesg you posted, there is a

pms_disable: command error

Did this happen with a ps/2 mouse plugged in? Could you post a bit
more context from dmesg?

You did not show any com port related dmesg output - so it's hard to tell
what is wrong with the serial mouse. It's hard to believe that com ports
would not work (even on such an old NetBSD version)
