When I had a request recently to implement pptp on CentOS 5.x,
and found that it was not supported in the standard kernels and
repos, I took that as a great opportunity to get the customer
away from PPTP (the work of Kindergarten Cryptographers according
to at least one well-know security site), to something better.

They are now using OpenVPN instead, and are very happy with it.
