In the file linux/Documentation/Changes, you can find the following

  The PPP driver has been restructured to support multilink and to
  enable it to operate over diverse media layers.  If you use PPP,
  upgrade pppd to at least 2.4.0b1.

So I believe that he new version of PPP is needed if you want to PPP
under 2.4.0.
