Previous LFS versions being anything prior to the switch to iproute2 (my
main system is from May this year), and pppd version being 2.4.2 in both
cases (tried 2.4.3 and that also fails).

Looks like you're right on the sysconfig bit though - somehow, a GATEWAY
entry has crept into my ifconfig.eth0/ipv4 file. Not sure where that
came from (probably a careless copy-paste from the book), but it's not
there in my current system. I'll test it next time I reboot, verify that
that's the cause.
