Comment:
Got it all running after some tinkering. The daemon `nordvpnd` runs fine as a simple runit service without any frills. 

However, something that worries me is that the nordvpn deb file re-distributes its own (I presume) statically built `openvpn`. For testing purposes I linked `/usr/bin/openvpn` to `/var/lib/nordvpn/openvpn`, and it seems to run fine. However, I was unable to find any licensing information that would give me clues about whether or not it would be OK to re-distribute nordvpn this way (without its own openvpn build).

Why not ask them? They got an easy-to-access service chat. Not sure if they know there but at least an email would probably give an answer. I'm sure there are others like me who would like to easily install it from the local package manager. Or did ask and they didn't like the idea?
