That's normal. It shows that your machine has one serial port and there's
support for 4 serial ports compiled to kernel.

But is there a com0 or cua00?

You can also try MAKEDEV com0 in /dev, although I can't see right now, what's
wrong. You may check your MAKEDEV script

MAKEDEV has nothing to do with hardware. It just creates entry points
to kernel (even if the driver isn't really there).

You can also try to make it manually: 'mknod /dev/tty00 c 28 0'
(I'm not sure about the 28, but it works on my 1.1.5 system)
