trying to get VPN going, still, this time with pptpd--and the
config script seems kaflooey--

	# apt-get install pptpd
	# pptpdconfig.pl
	/usr/sbin/pptpdconfig.pl: Permission denied.
	# ls -l /usr/sbin/pptpdconfig.pl
	-rw-r--r--    1 root   root   1581 Feb 22  2000 /usr/sbin/pptpdconfig.pl

<no chmod +x ?>

	# perl !$
	Can't exec "pptpdconfig.pl": Permission denied at /usr/lib/perl5/5.005/IPC/Open3.pm line 188.
	open2: exec of pptpdconfig.pl failed at /usr/lib/perl5/Debian/DebConf/ConfModule.pm line 46
	Use of uninitialized value at /usr/lib/perl5/Debian/DebConf/ConfModule.pm line 303.

am i missing a piece? (i ran this as root, so it wouldn't appear to be
a normal user permissions snag...)
