kppp does not work with OpenBSD (Unless you modify the code), it is a quite 
linux-centric application. I gave up trying to use it, and just made wrapper 
scripts around "ppp -background" (to run wwwoffle -fetch, postfix flush, 
fetchmail, etc.) with sudo and put a nice icon to run them on my girlfriend 
kde desktop.

Hope this helps.
