Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: pptpd

I tried building the pptpd-1.3.4 package from source to debug the
crashing behaviour it shows, however, I found that 'make install' put
the executables in the wrong location.

Line 175 of the Makefile had 'prefix = /usr/local' but the Ubuntu
location is just /usr (so /usr/sbin has the executables, etc).

Editing the make file to fix it was easy enough, but I don't understand
the generation of the Makefile via the ./configure step well enough to
suggest a safe patch.

$ lsb_release -rd
Description:	Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS
