[vbox-dev] vrdp options missing in VBoxManage (VBoxHeadless doesn't work)

I've compiled the vbox source from svn (revision 17173) on OSX 10.5.6  
Intel.  I noticed that in running VBoxManage, there are no options for  
configuring the vrdp settings for a vbox instance.

Also, running the 'tstHeadless2' app results in the following error:

tstHeadless STARTED.
VM name   : {debian_test}
Operation : on

[!] Callee      = IVirtualBox, {339abca2-f47a-4302-87f5-7bc324e6bbde}

Am I missing some libraries required for the addition of vrdp support,  
or does the OS X version not yet support this functionality (searches  
point to the fact that support exists, but just in case).
