I've hopefully managed to resolve the packaging issues (which were 
Debian specific) today...

With the current state of the tree it should be just a matter of running
"fakeroot debian/rules binary VNC=1", and get a package which has the 
VNC extpack included straight from the start.

Quite likely there are some packaging issues left on various platforms, 
but this can be sorted out by the community.

That's a docs bug which was fixed a few minutes ago - the extpack is 
named "VNC" consistently, I just mixed it up with the filename of the 
VRDE module. Short is beautiful, and there are enough "VBox" prefixes 
already ;)
