Where exactly in init are you trying to print?  If you're in the single_user
function, you can only use stdio in the forked child after it calls setctty.
Before that you have to open an fd on /dev/console yourself and write(2) to
it, or call login_tty on it which dups the standard descriptors from it.
I don't know if starting a getty on /dev/console will work, but in any case
this doesn't happen until you go multi-user, iirc this line is only used for
the secure keyword.
