Quick question - com port

I'm about to acquire a system that has only a serial console, so I need to use something like pkgsrc/comms/minicom to talk to it. I've got a com0 configured in my "host" system, but there doesn't seem to be any /dev/com0 nor any way to coax /dev/MAKEDEV to create it.

minicom seems to think I should be using a /dev/tty01 but I fail to see where the correlation between tty01 and com0 lies.

I'm obviously missing a big piece of clue somewhere...
