Dale sent a note that says they refer to compression techniques for
ppp. I haven't fiddled with them much; I probably compiled them into
the kernel instead of as modules.

mmmmmmm, /usr/src/linux/drivers/net I think? Look for ppp.c, then for
ppp-compress or bsd-deflate or whatever that was.  Cross your fingers
and look for related comments in the code.  Failing that, search the
net for ppp-related info/standards/protocols and see if clears
anything up :)
