I have now followed the FAQ 5.3.* sections and also Damien's guidelines
the ppp.html as above. And it STILL comes back with: 
"Warning: deflink: Device (PPPoA:ueagle0:0.35) must begin with a '/', a
'!' or contain at least one ':'"

That message is contained in physical.c in the ppp-directory btw.
After having to add new file systems for /usr/src and /usr/obj, editing
and building a new GENERIC, re-compiling ppp etc etc - all first-time
experiences, I think I a will call it a day with this driver. While 
everything else in OpenBSD "just works" this driver seems to be the
opposite. And I am apparently not the only one having this problem.
