  You can't. Just add something like

    /usr/etc/arp -s $USER `netstat -ia | grep :` pub

  to the shell script in which you start the SLIP process. $USER is the
  SLIP client. The 'netstat | grep' part gets the host's Ethernet
  address, and 'arp' advertises the host as an ARP server for $USER.
  See also the arp(1M) manpage.
