I just happen to be looking into vpn stuff with FreeBSD, I was looking at
the man page for ppp, there is a section that states passwd(5) can be used
instead of a secret file. Not sure if this entirely relates to your setup,
but I will be trying this out
If MyAuthPasswd is a ``*'', the password is looked up in the passwd(5)
