(Pick the appropriate serial device. Configure it with setserial(8)
and stty(1) first.)
The cu(1) command is in the Taylor-UUCP package from GNU.
You might also have a tip(1) program.
seyon(1) will do it too, just tell it an empty chat script.
And seyon has cool graphical indicators for the handshake lines.

I want to use Slackware Linux to establish a serial
VT100 connection to a Sun Sparc server that doesn'
have a graphical card. On the Sun side theres no
problems, just connect a VT100 compatible terminal
to the serial port and its ready.
I know I could use a communication program from Dos,
there were lots of them. In Linux it looks harder,
I tried minicom but it wanted to connect to a modem
line and I found no way for a direct RS 232 connection.
Could that be made in a simple way?
