If you are using real ppp (pppd, not a userland implementation), then this 
is very easy. Simply put this in /etc/ppp/ip-up

route add -net

Substitute with your own IPs, gateway and netmask, and make sure that 
/etc/ppp/ip-up is executable.

It might also be prudent to delete the route in /etc/ppp/ip-down, when the 
link drops.
