Handbook User PPP chapter outdated

There are some omissions and errors in the user PPP chapter, and it 
looks like it could stand some serious updating.

In "PPP and Dynamic IP Addresses", line 17 is shown as

   set ifaddr

Yet the description says "The last argument ( tells PPP to start 
negotiations using address rather than ..."

And there really should be a "" added to the end of that line; 
patch attached.

As for the omissions, there doesn't seem to be a mention that "papchap" 
is the default profile name if you enable PPP in rc.conf.

I only use PPP rarely, but it seems like the most common cases should be 
first.  Today, wouldn't that be PPP enabled in rc.conf with a dynamic IP
