Which stack?  There is a PPP stack that is available for the OpenBSD 
eCos stack under license, PPP is reported to be available for the lwIP 
stack (See 
http://sources.redhat.com/ml/ecos-discuss/2003-03/msg00526.html) and we 
have an in-house project to port the PPP FreeBSD stack to eCos.  So take 
your choice :-)

If you wish to start your own port, we recommend the FreeBSD networking 
stack (since it has IPV6 support and will succeeded the OpenBSD stack as 
the standard/default TCPIP stack for eCos). The PPP code from FreeBSD 
will be the best starting point.  Of course you will be duplicating our 
efforts, but then since ours is an unfunded internal project there is no 
guarantee when, if ever, the stack will be publically released.
