Summary and Info:
i am trying to use pptp and i see in my console
sh:/bin/ip: file does not exist.

sure because in arch we have /usr/sbin/ip

i don't know if it's critical to pptp but it sure would help if it find ip command.
that should be fixed upstream but they don't even use a configure script and the path of ip is hard coded in routing.c file (what a shame !).

so in the mean time
we could use a sed line like this in the PKGBUILD ?
sed -i 's|/bin/ip|/usr/sbin/ip|g' routing.c
before running make
or create a patch if you want

Steps to Reproduce:
run pptp
or run strings /usr/sbin/pptp|grep /bin/ip
This task depends upon

See for what one of the authors of pptp says (which basically amounts to: distros that don't have ip in /bin should patch routing.c).
