gpsd and fso-gpsd packages with Angstrom

I had gpsdrive working with gpsd as a daemon a month ago. Now I find myself downloading fso-gspd instead and I cannot connect my serial NMEA data to gpsdrive as before. I am missing something really obvious I expect.
I have tried opkg force-downgrades and force-depends without luck. Ogpsd raised my hopes as the missing link but I cannot find it to download. How does fso-gpsd connect to the serial port (ttyS1) ?
Any ideas or suggestions would be highly appreciated at this point. I’m clueless.
