Not exactly, the Arduino Duemilanove uses the ATmega168 chip. I have no
knowledge of the FT232.
Comport works really well on OSX with Pd however. The only issue is that it
will crash Pd if you disconnect the USB without first disconnecting in the
software. This is in the bugtracker/list of fixes, so maybe sometime soon it
will be solved. Other than that, it works great.
Good luck on your project, and be sure to send documentation of the
completed work. It sounds interesting.
