How does one set up a point to point NIC in NetworkManager? Or should I go back to doing everything manually?
To set up a fixed IP:

    Right-click on the NM icon
    Select "Edit Connections"
    Select the type of connection (wired, wireless, etc.)
    Click on "Add"
    Put some mnemonic name in the "Connection Name" field
    Check or uncheck the "Connect Automatically" box
    In the "Wired" tab, put in your MAC address
    In the "IPV4 Settings" tab:
        Select "Manual" as the method
        Click "Add" next to Addresses
        Put in the desired IP, netmask and gateway
        (you need to click in each field to enter data)
        Put in your desired DNS servers and search domains
    Click "Apply"

Fairly easy to do.

This seems to set up a one address link, but not set the P-t-P flag.

Thanks for the input, it's close enough to get packets to the right place, but doesn't trigger the P-t-P code in the kernel which seems to be desirable in a firewall.
