Default Booting an apu2

I'm attempting to install NetBSD on an apu2c0 from pcengines.ch, but having trouble booting the installer image. Sounds like it's the same issue that FreeBSD has on this device -- namely, the serial port runs at 115200 baud, whereas the installer defaults to 9600.

Is there a reasonable way to set the console speed from the boot menu? I'm vaguely aware that you can adjust boot.conf or recompile the kernel to achieve this, but I'm limited at the moment to the serial connection.

Edit to add: I tried pxe boot as well, but it seems like the same thing occurs -- the kernel starts booting, then just hangs.
