I don't know what version of FreeBSD you are using, but PPPoE has been available on FreeBSD for quite some time.
A quick search on Google with "PPPoE on FreeBSD" pulled up dozens of sites that show how-to's on PPPoE with FreeBSD.

Hello to all,
I'm using FreeBSD for almost 4 years and I will continue with it because I can't find better.
I subscribed to a ADSL connection in Portugal that supports only PPPoE (and not PPPoA).
Almost everyone in Portugal uses only 2 modems (supported by ISPs): Siemens Santis USB and Alcatel SpeedTouch 330 USB.
Linux people has already support to Alcatel USB modems with PPPoE connections and FreeBSD still lacks of PPPoE support.
I don't like Linux so, to solve my home network problem, I install a Windows machine to share the Internet (ooops!) across my LAN.
The new Speedtouch 1.2 beta2 driver (http://speedtouch.sourceforge.net/index.php?/news.en.html),
already support Bridging 1483 mode (PPPoE support) in pppoa3 but without
use in FreeBSD.
Please read the following thread to see some solutions for implementing PPPoE in FreeBSD.
For what you can see in this thread:
"...that task is simply a matter of two or three #ifdefs for each BSD flavor, but nobody seems volunteering to accomplish it."
I'm just a FreeBSD user not a programmer or hacker, so I can only help FreeBSD community asking you to try to implement PPPoE in FreeBSD so everyone uses it.
Thanks very much for your great work,

I worry about my child and the Internet all the time, even though she's too young to have logged on yet. Here's what I worry about. I worry that 10 or 15 years from now, she will come to me and say "Daddy, where were you when they took freedom of the press away from the Internet?" -- Mike Godwin
Unix IS user friendly... It's just selective about who its friends are.
System Administration - It's a dirty job, but somebody said I had to do it.
