TACACS+ and RADIUS plugins for pppd

These pppd plugins implement authentication, authorization and accounting (AAA) via a TACACS+ and RADIUS servers. The TACACS+ plugin is based on Cisco tac_plus sources, and the RADIUS plugin is based on FreeBSD libradius sources which are both included in the distribution. Both plugins have common design, similar features, and similar configuration options. If desired, these plugins may be loaded into plugins stack by means of Stacker meta-plugin for pppd and tried one by one until authentication/authorization succeeds.

    Release Notes: A "ToDo List" chapter has been added to the documentation page. Both MPPE and non-MPPE patches for pppd-2.4.1 have been changed to add more plugin hooks and to change the plugin interface to be more similar to the not-yet-released pppd-2.4.2 plugin interface. MS-CHAP, MS-CHAPv2, and MPPE support have been added to the RADIUS plugin; this has been tested with the FreeRADIUS server only. A compatibility patch is available for pppd with the MPPE+MSCHAPv2 patches previously applied. The mkdep utility from PMake is no longer used; cc -M is used instead. Libproc is now searched for in both the proc and procps subdirectories of the include directories.
