The default kernel for Raspberry Pi installations does not come with
PPPoE support.  I don't know for certain but the default kernel for
some other evbarm boards *does* come with PPPoE support so I assume
the reason for it not being included in the Raspberry Pi is mainly
that nobody has done this yet and it's therefore just a waste of
space.  Also, because Pis only have one ethernet NIC, they're not
exactly the ideal hardware for this, some other SBCs are probably a
bit better suited.

But I think it should work, just add "pseudo-device pppoe" to your
kernel config file and recompile.
