It's a binary that the NetworkManager-novellvpn package executes to
start the vpn connection.  NM-novellvpn does not seem to include nvpn,
so it must be some external program.

See src/nm-novellvpn-service.c :: nm_novellvpn_start_novellvpn_binary().

I assume there's a novellvpn package in OpenSUSE somewhere.  Obviously
adding that package (if it's open-source) to Fedora would be a
prerequisite to adding NetworkManager-novellvpn.
