I believe that FreeBSD has a variant of the same pppd. I don't know how
out of sync it is with the upstream sources, though. IIRC, I believe
there are two or three different ways to do PPP on FreeBSD.
If porting Debian's pppd package turns out to be unfeasible or inferior
for some reason, one of the other methods might be made to work.
