I have the same problem.

I found some demos on the web page (click in left row on "units"),
download elecom12, read file win32com.pas (Com_Open, Com_SendChar, ...)
Seems one must use an API call for initializing (SetCommState) 
and provide callback functions for sending and receiving.
I think the Win32 API doc is also available somewhere on Free Pascal Web page.
Google Search for "SetCommState" also finds some info on e Microsoft web page.

Does somebody have a minimal demo source?
