The config you have made probably suits to mpd3/4, but not to mpd5. Mpd5 
uses alike commands, but general configuration idea is different. There 
is no mpd.links file in mpd5. Read new examples present in package.

Then it would be reasonable to merge "pptpd:" section here.

If you are connecting to the ISP it would be better not to specify IP to 
let them be negotiated.

Without "on-demand" "set iface addrs" is useless.

This is default.

It will be difficult to accept incoming while listening on
