Yes, I've got details for "provider:" in ppp.conf, and my ppp.linkup
just contains:
  !bg /usr/local/sbin/ddclient -daemon=0 -syslog -use=ip ip="MYADDR"

Yes, I'm already logging this.  I just get the output of the command
above, without MYADDR substituted.  For example:
  Oct 10 17:15:17 tomtest ppp[2884]: Command: ntlworld: !bg
  /usr/local/sbin/ddclient -daemon=0 -syslog -use=ip ip=MYADDR
