doh! one more question I hadn't even considered the first time around:
is this using devfs? If *not*, then you probably need to create the
device files like this:

mknod /dev/ttyS0 c 4 64
mknod /dev/ttyS1 c 4 65
mknod /dev/ttyS2 c 4 66
mknod /dev/ttyS3 c 4 67
chown root.dialout /dev/ttyS*
chmod 660 !$

if it's devfs, then those files' nonexistence is explained by the
kernel's not configuring the serial port drivers. (And, unfortunately,
that's the edge of my realm of knowledge)

good times, (and go bears!)
