Oh, now that makes a lot more sense.  Thank you.

After I build it on the server with 'make install' do I need to rebuild the
guacamole server?

Yes. You'll need to rerun ./configure, so that the build takes note of the
different version of FreeRDP, and then rerun make and make install.

I would also recommend doing a make clean first, to ensure that the past
build is cleaned up.

The API of each release of FreeRDP is drastically different, and a decent
majority of Guacamole's configure script is devoted to detecting the
different versions, enabling/disabling sections of Guacamole's RDP build as
a result. Things will not build correctly, if at all, if you do not rerun

Also, when I first setup the server (initially) I installed the Debian
package libfreerdp-dev.  Do i need to remove/purge that package after
building FreeRDP from the git source?

Yes. In fact, I would recommend removing both libfreerdp-dev and libfreerdp
prior to building FreeRDP from git.
