[...] Which version of netifrc do you have? Could this be bug 642774[1]? It depends on the request to stabilize netifrc-0.6.1, so if you have an older version, you could try that one. From the commit itself[2], it looks like netifrc is checking for L2TP in a way which produces this output when L2TP isn't supported.
