Make sure you also install the matching libopenconnect5 package from

I just did that here, and those builds *don't* have PKSC support.

 $ openconnect --version
OpenConnect version v9.01-0+9.1
Using GnuTLS 3.6.13. Features present: TPMv2, PKCS#11, RSA software token, HOTP software token, TOTP software token, Yubikey OATH, System keys, DTLS, ESP
Supported protocols: anyconnect (default), nc, gp, pulse, f5, fortinet, array
Default vpnc-script (override with --script): /usr/share/vpnc-scripts/vpnc-script
 $ ldd /usr/sbin/openconnect | grep pskc

It's not clear why you managed to install the openconnect binary
package without the corresponding library. In RPM packaging you get a
dependency on '' which is
handled automatically. You wouldn't be able to install a package which
*uses* new symbols from without also installing
that package.

In Debian it's apparently different; I'm not sure if this is just
something that Debian packaging doesn't handle at all, or if it's an
issue with the way we build in OBS? Luca?
