Hi Darcy.
Ok, managed to give it a spin on my powerpc rig.
My changes:

* RP_PPPOE_TARGETS_BIN and MANPAGES are basically the same, so merged.

* No need for RP_PPPOE_SOURCE if it uses the standard naming convention
(it does), so removed it.

* In INSTALL_TARGET_CMDS prefer $(INSTALL) over cp.


* In patch 002 (krn-plugin) you're hardcoding PLUGIN_DIR, i removed it
and just pass it to the package at build time (new RP_PPPOE_MAKE_OPTS)
based on pppd's package version. This is to avoid future breakage when
pppd changes version.

* Added RP_PPPOE_DEPENDENCIES = pppd, so that we build after pppd is
done, otherwise you may miss the pppd.h header.

* Cosmetic fixes.

Give it a spin, works for me.
Thanks and regards.
