Not really.  The problem I had was that pppd would fail to run my connect
script.  Instead, it immediately reported "connect script failed."

I went back to the previous pppd (built mid-week last week) and everything
works OK, so the problem is _very_ recent.

I've noticed several CVS commits in the last 36 hours, so maybe building
from today's or tomorrow's -current will work once again.
