Centos 6.6
The RDP support is broken for remmina-plugins 0.9.3 in pkgsrc current. The reason is, that since remmina 0.8 the rdp backend changed to freerdp. This is not reflected in the pkgsrc Makefile, which still depends on rdesktop 1.6 as rdp backend.
RDP support is not available when building remmina and remmina-plugins from pkgsrc current.
I tried modifying the Makefile of remmina-plugins 0.9.3 to use freerdp. However the freerdp version in current is not API compatible with remmina 0.9.3 so the build fails. The current stable version of remmina is 1.1.2, which schould be api compatible with the freerdp version in current.

So in order to restore the remmina rdp functionality in current one has to upgrade remmina to a new version. There are big changes between remmina 0.9.3 and 1.1.2, mainly because remmina 1.1.2 is gtk3 compatible. So upgrading the remmina to the new version might not be as easy as one would think.
