That would be pretty cool, the thinstation guys have got ICA, VDI and RDP working I think and its a tiny distro.
Problem is that Thinstation relies on closed source components, and that comes with some practical and legal issues.
To my knowledge the Citrix's ICA and VDI components used are not open source, so can only be compiled for the rPi by Citrix.
Any bugs can only be fixed by them, and they would need to authorize distribution.
Be aware that while the components can be downloaded for free from their site, that doesn't automatically grant you the right to bundle them with your own stuff.
Other companies did open source their client libraries, so they would be a more logical choice for inclusion in a future version of BerryTerminal.
Think of VMware view open client, RedHat's SPICE project and NX.
