It's been a while since I last did that, but there is not much to it:
you configure the modem to answer, connect it, edit /etc/ttys to select
the proper speed for that port - and that's it.

If you need anything more fancy (like incoming faxes, autoselection of
ppp calls and shell calls) replace getty for that line with (for example)
comms/mgetty from pkgsrc.
