I think you are talking about LocalTalk. That's a CSMA/CD usage of
the port (like Ethernet) that runs at 230kbits/second. Not supported
by NetBSD at this time.
I suspect that the problem is what Greg Kritsch said really
(interrupt handling) and stand corrected. Since nobody seems to be
using serial ports much there could be multiple problems I suppose.
