Did you try 
     slattach -h -s ...       
-h like hardware handshake ?

For me this works fine even with 38400 Baud between Mac and Modem.
If you already tried the -h switch, check you modem cable.
With my cable I had to connect HSKO (Handshake out from the Mac side)
to the RTS pin (pin 4 in a 25 pin D-sub connector). The original cable
had a connection from HSKO to DTR (pin 20 on D-sub connector).
HSKI should be connected to CTS (pin 5 on D-sub connector).

Hope this helps
