I think you generally want "device ppp" and "device tun" on 5-STABLE
boxes, the "pseudo-device ppp 1" has gone long ago...

Also, the examples in sys/[ARCH]/conf/GENERIC would be helpful for
reference.  You may obtain a more detailed list by running "make LINT"
under the conf directory.  For descriptions of kernel options, check
out the NOTES files found in architecture dependent conf directories,
and sys/conf.
