Yes, ppp supports Linux, Solaris, and SunOS. It doesn't appear to have support for FreeBSD. Since FreeBSD already has it's own implementation, I'm planning to go with that to start with.
util-linux has been ported to GNU, so it probably builds on GNU/FreeBSD without problem as it's using glibc. The patch is in bug #153410, but I think Guillem Jover has made a newer one, I'm CCing him.
I will take a look. There are parts of it that work fine, and others that will need a lot of work to get running.
It should be possible to port sysklogd, also. I think it just needs a replacement for klogd. I don't think that would be too hard to write.
