Oops. My scripts do one extra layer of text substitutions,
and I did not delete enough \'s before posting. All this
does is find out what the kernel sets ISDN_MAX_CHANNELS
to, and inserts that into sysdeps/linux/ppp.c:

mv sysdeps/linux/ppp.c sysdeps/linux/ppp.c~
imc=$(cpp -dM -D__KERNEL__ /usr/include/linux/isdn.h | awk '/#define ISDN_MAX_CHANNELS/ {print $3}')
awk '/linux\/isdn\.h/ {print "#define ISDN_MAX_CHANNELS '$imc'"} {print}'\
  >sysdeps/linux/ppp.c sysdeps/linux/ppp.c~
