no /dev/ppp node made; hotplug?

PPP is prompting me to 'mknod /dev/ppp c 108 0' after every boot. The
same thing happens in Arch with udev without hotplug installed, which
leads me to believe it's a deficiency in the hotplug scripts. What can
I do to trace this back to the source so I can get this fixed
permanently, and what can I do in the meantime so I don't have to
manually make the node each reboot? If I was in Arch I would just do it
from rc.local, but I haven't been able to figure out what the equivalent
is in Debian inits (sys V?)
This is a hard ISA modem based on the Intel/Ambient 56xx chipset, if
it's relevant I can probably get a look at the exact version.
By the way, this is easily the most cohesive desktop I've used, good
