iirc, [serialize] was rather something like [repack 1] from zexy (to be 
precise, [repack 1] is a clone of [serialize], but [repack] offers 
extended functionality);
so [serialize] has nothing to do with the serial port but rather with a 
stream of atoms as opposed to a list of atoms.

why not make your own [gate]? for an abstraction you need 2 [inlet]s, 1 
[outlet] and 1 [spigot].
[spigot] in pd-0.39 takes a creation argument to set the initial state 
of the object (if this is, why you use [gate]); if you _must_ use 
pd<0.39 you can always use a [loadbang] to initialize the [spigot].

[makesymbol] and [packel] are fine in zexy>=2.0.
[packel] can now be done with plain pd-objects (see frank's collection 
of list-objects)

[matrix] and [matrix~] are now in iemmatrix, which i recommend instead 
of sticking to old versions of zexy. [matrix~] in iemmatrix (which btw 
is now called [mtx_*~] and has slightly different behaviour; but you can 
still use the name [matrix~] and get the old behaviour) should be faster 
than the original version.
