it looks to me that the default setting for pppd is changed somewhere
in pppd master distribution development, and old configuration without
explicit "noauth" chokes. the easiest way to update configuration
file is to put "noauth" in /etc/ppp/options. maybe we should document
the change somewhere, and/or put sample /etc/ppp/* somewhere.
