If this means ppp is working for you now, that's certainly good news.

What was the result of trying to build the XFree86-4 port?  Was there an 
error message or not?  If there was no error, you will next need to 
configure XFree86 for your system.  (By the way, 'make install clean' will 
do what you want, without the need of the first 'make.')
