Removed Ubuntu packages related to openconnect, did make clean on 
nm-openconnect, confirmed no libopenconnect.so.2 was present, rebuilt, 
did make install. I guess some service/daemon should be running. Also 
rebooted. Connection type is not present for openconnect. This was fine 
with the Ubuntu package for v5.02. Fails with could not find VPN plugin 
service for org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.openconnect. When I try to 
open a previously existing VPN connection, it reports the service fails 
to start. There is a /usr/local/libexec/nm-openconnect-service but not 
at the location reported in the error (/usr/lib/Network-Manager). Nice 
if this worked after install, but not necessarily an OpenConnect issue.

Something was up with /etc/resolv.conf, most likely as I have multiple 
VPNs on this VM that don't all necessarily play nice. After fixing the 
symlink, at least openconnect v6.00 command line can really connect (not 
just authenticate) to the old VPN that only requires the AD/LDAP 
password. No effect on the auth using token on the new VPN.
