Since that plugin is not even in the pppd plugin path, there is no way
to detect this problem.

Besides rp-pppoe, pppd-ldap also needs a rebuild (the plugin is still
for 2.4.4, so I wonder if a single person ever used it).

I also wonder why rp-pppoe is still in core. It provides no essential
functionality that netctl+ppp don't.
