I am trying to get pptpd (poptop) running on a NetBSD 1.5 system. It works
by using pppd to connect two machines over a sort of vpn.

The built-in pppd appears to work, but it seems I cannot authenticate
a Windows client.

There are some docs amongst the poptop files that talk about patching pppd
for Linux in order to support MSCHAP.

Does NetBSD's pppd support MSCHAP? If not, are there patches or something?
