I have now prepared a ppp source tar file which is hacked to compile the lot
of the source files cleanly. This involved providing a few preprocessor
symbols (MAXHOSTNAMELEN, MAXPATHLEN, _BSD_VA_LIST_) and messing around a bit
with the header files (missing includes, etc). Instead changing every file,
I put empty files if.h etc in net/, so that they can be found by "-I.".
You can probably add stuff there for kludges.
So, what is the status with this? The subdirectories libhack and pppctrl are
unknown territory, maybe some stuff is needed from there, too.
In ppp, of 49 necessary source files 41 compile.

Fix up MD5 stuff in chap.c (we don't have <md5.h> and functions...)
Add real code in tun.c when fsysopts can set --mtu.
