userland ppp ("No context" errorÃs

i built a 1.5.0 system today for another slice, to keep a 1.4.0 install
available for some time (a la *BSD from scratch). The weird thing is so:
though i copied over ppp.conf, i'm facing errors for almost every line
from /etc/ppp/ppp.conf that /usr/sbin/ppp parses. Those errors say:
  "No context (use the 'link' command)"

After digging a bit the manpage, i decided to try prefixing all those
lines with "link deflink " and *it worked*. Now ppp doesn't scream
anymore and is functional again.
I'm not doing anything fancy with it: merely use it for a PPPoE

The latest change in src/usr.sbin/ppp is 10 days old for ncpaddr.c but i
don't know if it relates to passing around a context.
Friends, any hint about what went wrong with my ppp ?
