I use pppd regulary and it works very well.

Your kernel is missing pppd device
go to the kernel config /usr/src/sys/i386/conf
and make a kernel using the GENERIC as a template,
at the end of config file, remove the tun devices and
include ppp device assigning the number of devices you need
configure the kernel config xxx go to the directory ../../compile/xxx
and do a make depend all install.
Reboot the machine, and the ppp is now there
