Um, somebody correct me, but when you do any of the make config scripts
for the kernel, it specifically states that bsd compression (ppp
compress the same?) only works when compiled as a module.  I ran
into a situation sometime back with my current ISP where the link
stopped working and it was due to a lack of ppp header compression
on my end.  Compiled that module and it's worked fine ever since.

The problem may be that /etc/modules.conf is lacking at least the 
following lines:

alias ppp-compress-21   bsd_comp                                                
alias ppp-compress-24   bsd_comp                                                

Since your error also included a reference to ppp-compress-26, simply
add a third line and see if the error messages go away.
