The code is this:
# Set up ppp if not already set up.
if [ ! -e /etc/ppp/peers/provider ]; then
pppconfig --noname </dev/tty >/dev/tty || true
Maybe the ppp package has changed so that there is a /etc/ppp/peers/provider
by default; this would defeat base-config. Would someone like to run
debootstrap or do a test install and check?
Of course, if pppconfig is not installed as part of the base system or
something, that could also explain it.
