Right. In fact, there are TWO device files created for serial ports. The
names follow an irregular pattern (not like Linux, where it's a very
regular pattern): the one you want starts with "tty." followed by some
string describing the device providing the serial port. Make a symlink
from that device file to dosdevices/com1 in your Wine prefix (usually
it's ~/.wine, where '~' is your home folder).

By the way, you can't even see the .wine folder from the Finder, much
less make a symlink in it. You have to use the command line. Open
Terminal (in /Applications/Utilities) and type this in:

 ln -s /dev/tty.<whatever> ~/.wine/dosdevices/com1

followed by Return. Replace '<whatever>' with whatever's after the
"tty." in the device file. Then try your program again; maybe this time
it will work.
