With a serial cable the logging of these messages is very easy. Here is a sample:

Welcome to the OpenBSD/i386 4.5 installation program.
(I)nstall, (U)pgrade or (S)hell? i

Cool! Let's get to it.

At any prompt except password prompts you can escape to a shell by
typing '!'. Default answers are shown in []'s and are selected by
pressing RETURN.  You can exit this program at any time by pressing
Control-C, but this can leave your system in an inconsistent state.

Terminal type? [vt220]
System hostname? (short form, e.g. 'foo') vintrax

Available network interfaces are: fxp0 vlan0.
Which one do you wish to configure? (or 'done') [fxp0]
IPv4 address for fxp0? (or 'dhcp' or 'none') [dhcp]
Netmask? []
IPv6 address for fxp0? (or 'rtsol' or 'none') [none]
Available network interfaces are: fxp0 vlan0.
Which one do you wish to configure? (or 'done') [done]
Default IPv4 route? (IPv4 address, 'dhcp' or 'none')
add net default: gateway
I am not going to pass this request on, I am not even considering it, because I know, I would get an answer like this:
"Why should OpenBSD developers spend their precious time, to make things easier for lazy people"
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
