Ah, I see. So my pptp connection will not be rl0 (my netcard that is
connected to the net) but ppp0?

This is a bit of a misleading message (fixed in -current). You need to
create the ppp device, since it is no longer created automatically.
Easiest way is to create an empty /etc/hostname.ppp0 file. Then after each
reboot, the ppp0 device will be created automatically. See for mor details
And my ISP uses pptp, I even called them to make sure.
