Errr, it's not, is it?  I am pretty sure that the NetBSD "cu" is the
Taylor UUCP cu, and doesn't have a thing to do with tip (other than they're
both slightly broken programs that know how to talk to serial lines :-) ).

I have used cu to dial out on ports without putting "local" in my /etc/ttys.
I have the following in /etc/uucp/port:

port tty01
 type modem
 device /dev/tty01
 speed 57600

Your milage may vary.
