`device ppp' was already defined in my kernel config file so
there was no need to kldload if_ppp.  But I had to run
`ifconfig create ppp' to make things work.

I don't much like auto kldloading modules from suid programs.
A simple hack is to just add ifconfig create ppp in rc.local.
Also kldload if_ppp if needed.
