What pin would it control?
Unlike on a desktop PC where the CTS pin is part of the physical serial port UART, on Netduino most of the UART channels don't actually have flow control pins, so you'd need to change the method signature and it would just be messy.
However, since we are using C# and it is object oriented, and the SerialPort class is not sealed, you can easily add that behaviour yourself by inheriting from SerialPort and adding your own CtsHolding property.
.NET Micro Framework does support hardware flow for serial ports since version 3.0 and you can get the CTS/RTS pins using HardwareProvider.GetSerialPins method.

You can get CTS pin number, but you cannot read it. That’s because CTS and all other UART related pins are reserved.
