Sorry for the delay - didn't read email at the weekend.

If you apt-get source ppp. Then in the ppp-2.4.1 dir you'll see a debian
dir. Under that you'll see a patches dir. There's a bunch of numbered
patches that debian apply to the standard distribution.

What I've done is added 998ppp-mppe.diff and 999stripMSDomain.diff to that
dir. Then from the ppp-2.4.1 dir (back up two), run dpkg-buildpackage and
it'll build a .deb for you.

Some of the patches required some modifications for 2.4.1.

Have a look a http://greenspot.ie.nwcgroup.com/ppp/ for the patches and
the deb.

Just remember to put the ppp package on hold so it doesn't get overwritten
by the non-mppe ppp package next time you do and apt-get upgrade.
