I did check this. You do not get a usable network choosing firewall
when you have not installed Iptables.

Yes, that works. Note: the wiki has a missing '<':
cat >/usr/bin/pcall <"EOF"
Also to give credit, the /etc/ppp/peers/pppoe should read:
# 'Roaring Penguin' pppoe plugin is included in the ppp distribution.
# There is no need to install the rp-pppoe package.
I hacked the BLFS pppoe service to use the start/stop commands the wiki
suggests. Everything works as expected.
I think removing RP-PPPoE is a valid suggestion. Perhaps just a pointer
to the wiki in 'Other Connections'.
