Am I missing something or is it not possable for the default rc and
netstart files to use pppd. the /usr fs is mounted AFTER netstart tries
to run /usr/sbin/pppd. Am I supposed to move netstart to after the
mounting of critical fs's ? But then what if I nfs mount /usr from
another machine! (local net obviously).
this is a known problem (see PR 4744). i did not see it because my
/usr is actually part of /, and so /usr/sbin/pppd *is* available to
my netstart, and thus it just 'worked' for me.
however, there are other problems in addition to this one. for now,
you may as well run pppd from /etc/rc.local.
