why is xmms trying to open a linux-named serial port on your freebsd
machine?  is your problem with needing to use a serial port and the
reference to xmms accidental, or is xmms actually outputting that
message?  in any case, ttyS(n) is the device name for RS232 serial ports
in linux - in freebsd they are two designations ttyd(n) for "dialin"
lines and cuaa(n) for "dialout" lines.  either way i'm pretty sure that
xmms shouldn't be worry about this at all.
