No. It is dead as in "He's dead, Jim". :)
It is still in the README:
pc386/README:+ BSP_ENABLE_COM1_COM4 - value of 1 to enable, 0 to disable
pc386/README:+ BSP_USE_COM1_AS_CONSOLE - value of 1 forces console to COM1
pc386/README: USE_COM1_AS_CONSOLE=1 --enable-rtemsbsp=pc386 \
And I think providing guidance in the user's manual that if you used to
use this option when building, that there is a new way to achieve the same
result would be desirable.
