	You have just wrote how, just do/run it in reverse order ;-)
	Patches are currently at http://planetmirror.com/pub/mppe/
	I have patched 2.4.18 with a patch for 2.4.0 (building ppp-related
things as modules), then did pppd 2.4.1 with its openssl and MSCHAPv2
patch, and finally ran pptpd with proper options. It seems to work
(or I am missing something:), tried with W98 (compression end encryption
enabled) as well as W2000 (default settings - require data encryption,
disconnect if none).
	I think one could patch pppd to read encrypted passwords from
chap-secrets file... Not me, though ;)
