We used to have Brian's PPP in Debian for the GNU/Hurd port, but it was
removed from the archive [1]. We're playing with Debian's PPP though, and
unless it's unworkable for us it isn't likely that we use FreeBSD's PPP with
the alternative C library as the default.

[1] see the archived thread:

I recently posted a patch for Debian's PPP to work on GNU/FreeBSD [2]. Have
you tried it? It's untested yet and i'm waiting for someone to tell me how
it works.
