Portslave is in Debian, "apt-get install portslave" does the job.  It's 
strongly recommended that you don't compile it yourself as it's a real pain 
to compile (of course compiling via dpkg-buildpackage is easy enough).

Portslave does require a RADIUS server for full functionality, but that's easy 
enough to setup.  The RADIUS server can use the phone number of the caller 
etc as it sees fit (Portslave provides all the data if correctly configured).  
You should theoretically be able to get it working in a minimal way without 
RADIUS, but as no-one tests that it may not work...

Portslave can provide logins via ssh, telnet, or spawning /bin/login as well 
as SLIP and PPP.
