Pardon my curiosity, but I've looked at a few AT91 parts, and I've
never seen on with an internal transceiver -- nor does Google seem
able to find any.

Frankly, I'd be pretty surprised, since it would be very difficult
(fab-wise), to build a mircoprocessor with I/O cells capable of
withstanding the voltage levels specified in RS232.

Can you specify to which parts you're referring?
