Aside from detecting the status of the DSL link, ppp(8) can handle
everything you need.  However, figuring out when the link goes down
can be tricky; among other things, the techniques available depend on
how you interface to the DSL line.  You may need some kind of
heartbeat -- in the worst case, you might need to set one up yourself
using a ping of some upstream router.

Good luck.
