I guess Xastir uses a special driver for your gps? 
I use a USB gps (navilock NL-302U) and it works out of the box. 
When I plug it in, it is recognized as /dev/ttyUSB0 or /dev/ttyUSB1.

One thing you can do is:
'tail -f /var/log/messages'
and plug in the gps.... If it is recognized at all you will see where it is
