Well, I finally got semi-unlame. I committed a PPTP package just now
(net/pptp) which does non-encrypted PPTP _client_ just fine. My
company's PPTP server doesn't seem to work properly using it with the
ppp-mppe package and MPPE turned on, but I'll keep working on this.
Anybody know much about MPPE and GRE and could help debug the problems?
