I see that mppe-lkm is a "NetBSD kernel module". The source code appears
to be for Linux kernels, plus a file is provided to support NetBSD. It
uses ppp_mppe_compress.c and ppp-comp-local.h from the
I'd suggest that you comment out that ONLY_FOR_PLATFORM=.
Then run "make configure" and look at the created work/mppe-lkm/ directory
and in particular at lkm_mppe.c.
Then ask a DragonFly list and/or the poptop.sf.net list to help with
making this compile under DragonFly. You probably just need a custom
lkm_mppe.c. Maybe some google searches will show that it is already
available for DragonFly or FreeBSD and we can add that support to pkgsrc.
(As for me, I don't know this software.)
