There are some backported packages (mostly for running 2.4 on potato)
at deb http://people.debian.org/~bunk/debian potato main. 

pppoe 3.something is one of them. However, /usr/sbin/pppoe in that
package is a wrapper script that uses a bash feature (c style ++
operator) that was introduced after bash 2.03, so you either have to
patch /usr/sbin/pppoe or use pppoe.real in your
/etc/ppp/peers/dsl-provider file.

I have attached said patch below:
