I need to wire up the hardware flow control lines of the CuteDigi RS232 shield to lines on my Mega 2560.  Looking at the shield board, it does not appear that any lines other than Tx and Rx are hooked up to the MAX232 and DB9.  Am I seeing that correctly?  Am I just better off prototyping a custom MAX232 board, or is there an RS232 shield available with all the control lines wired up?
