I've only played with this once, but my memory was that you have to
first bind the bluetooth device to a serial device.  Something like:

sdptool search DUN
hcitool scan

Figure out what device you want to use, then:
rfcomm connect /dev/rfcomm0 MAC CHANNEL

MAC and CHANNEL will need to be figured out from your earlier probes.
The you can just use /dev/rfcomm0 as your modem and do normal ppp over
