pptp package must to have binutils as dependence (and binutils must be added to install.iso), because file /usr/sbin/pptpsetup contain "strings" calling:

my $command = q/strings `which pppd`|grep -i mppe|wc --lines/;

So, install Arch by VPN is too difficult, because binutils cannot be installed w/o intetnet connection.
This task depends upon

Just for information: At the moment I have too little time for Arch, I will do my best to find a solution in the next upcoming weeks.
