I have made the changes to the initial state using rc.serial as you
suggested so that only /dev/cuaia1 is affected.  This had the desired affect
on /dev/cuaa1, so now when I check the state using stty -a </dev/cuaa1,
crtscts and clocal are set.

Unfortunately, this had no effect on iij-ppp, in term mode.  I still get no
characters received/sent by/from the modem.  One note however, when I issue
the term command, the TR light on the modem comes on, indicating that some
sort of signal is being received.
