Using mpd, all works as expected. However, it would be nice to not have
to install a port.

changing the config a bit, if I remove the

add xx.yy.zz.aa HISADDR

I get the behaviour I want. ie. no route command inside the ppp.conf config.

So back to the simple config of

 set device PPPoE:igb2
 set server /var/run/dsl-internet "" 0177
 set speed sync
 enable echo
 disable vjcomp
 set cd 15
 set dial
 set login
 set timeout 0
 set lqrperiod 10
 set authname username
 set authkey password
 set ifaddr

but without the route addition, it works.  If I do it in ppp.linkup, the
same issue.  Whats odd is that I am not able to delete the route that
ppp adds.  /sbin/route does not see it, but quagga does still, but marks
it as inactive.
