I am not familiar with these programs, but keep in mind that
these methods may not be the best choice. FreeBSD and BSDs
in general are very nicely integrated. The solution might (or
not) be in the base system.

You guessed wrong:) From ppp(8):

     It is also possible to log directly to the screen.  The syntax is the
     same except that the word ``local'' should immediately follow ``set
     log''.  The default is ``set log local'' (i.e., only the un-maskable
     warning, error and alert output).

Something else of possible interest is that ppp, can serve its console
over a socket making remote debugging possible.
