I have recently rebuilt, using EGCS, my kernel.  When I reboot, pppd
refuses to maintain a connection.  Syslog says "modem hangup".  pppd's
debugging output does not work for diddly, for some reason, so the
only way I could find out anything is thru ktrace/kdump.  Did so, and
after about the third read on connection, ktrace shows me, within pppd,
read eventually returning "Resource unavailable".

So I recompiled pppd.  No go.
So I recompiled libc, libutil, libcrypt and libpcap.  No go.

As soon as I revert to the old kernel, everything is hunky dory, even
with the new libraries in place.

I have changed NOTHING in my config file since 1.3.

What gives?  Is there any other information needed here?
