It depends on both host and target.  

I've run GDB (and for this issue, GDB and Insight should be the same)
with the remote protocol on a serial line with just tx, rx, and ground
on a UNIX host with hardware flow control disabled.  The remote
protocol, for all its warts, is robust enough to work reliably in the
absense of flow control.

It's nice to have a 232 breakout box when solving serial connectivity
