VMware toolbox for guest OS (for VMware 4.x, Linux version)

This is the full-featured Linux version VMware toolbox for FreeBSD
_Guest_ OS.  Beware, this port is _not_ for FreeBSD _Host_ OS.

As VMware toolbox included in VMware tools for FreeBSD is not as good
as that for Linux, it lacks some useful features such as time
synchronization between the virtual machine and the Host OS.  That is
why this port is provided.


Before installing this port, make sure you have a `linux.iso' file
that comes with VMware:

Welcome to the new linux ports infrastructure which allows using
both current (fc4) and future linux (f8) distributions at one
ports tree.

The patch contains full changes to ports/Mk files and all ports involved.
But only infrastructure is changed. The resulting packages are the same as
before. Hence no need to bump PORTREVISIONs.

The idea was taken from bsd.gnome.mk and others.

More than 130 ports are switched to follow a new linux infrastructure
introduced by changes to bsd.port.mk, bsd.linux-rpm.mk and a new
bsd.linux-apps.mk.

Thanks for all who was involved and helped me with this work.
And help from Alexander Leidinger was incredible.

Other changes are coming. Stay tuned!

Mega-patch to cleanup the ports infrastructure regarding our linux bits:
  - USE_LINUX now implies NO_FILTER_SHLIBS=yes. It also doesn't use FreeBSD
    tools to strip binaries anymore, so it's not neccesary anymore to override
    STRIP and STRIP_CMD.
  - USE_LINUX_PREFIX implies NO_MTREE now.
  - In the USE_LINUX case, USE_XLIB now depends upon the linux X11 libraries
    instead upon the native FreeBSD libraries.
  - The variable LINUX_BASE_PORT contains a string which is suitable as an
    item in *_DEPENDS, so if a port BATCH_DEPENDS or FETCH_DEPENDS upon the
    default (or overriden) linux base, ${LINUX_BASE_PORT} should be used
    instead of a hardcoded reference.
  - Change all ports to comply to the "new world order".
  - The Ports Collection now allows to override the default linux_base port.
    Specify e.g. OVERRIDE_LINUX_BASE_PORT=rh-9 in /etc/make.conf to use
    ${PORTSDIR}/emulators/linux_base-rh-9 (the logic is to use

Say hello to the linux mega patch, it consolidates our linux bits a
little bit and allows to proceed to a more recent linux_base from
a stable (read as: the major bugs should be ironed out or identified
and most linux ports build just fine) source.

It also allows to ship 4.11 with a working linuxolator (the EOLed
linux_base is marked forbidden because of a security hole).

This is a major update, please read UPDATING (and CHANGES if you
develop linux ports).

Changes:
 - change the default linux_base from v7 to v8
 - add a newer freetype to linux_base-8 for nicer fonts display [1]
 - don't let cpio use hardlinks in the linux_base-8 port to quiet some

Update VMware Tools for 4.0.1 build-5289, the latest version of VMware
Workstation.

This commit makes vmware-tools4 a slave port of vmware-guestd4, since
both are made from the same tarball, and it would be easy to maintain.
Vmware-guestd4 also installs a kernel module named vmmemctl; you may
want to kldload(8) it with a shell script under rc.d/ directory.

VMware Workstation 4.0.1 does fix "jumping the pointer" bug (yeah, thanks
VMware developer team).  This means that you do not have to install
linux-vmware-toolbox4.  However, it can be used as it should be, I
do not disable and/or remove this port.

I've too much asked that where to get files for install.  Apparantly,
the word 'none' is an obscure comment.

No content change, no procedure change, so no bump.

Update VMware-related tools to the of VMware Workstation 4.0.0 build-4460
(after repocopying old ones, thank you joe).

It seems that VMware does not provide a new version of guest tools
for VMware 4.x to FreeBSD guest, but it would be better to add these
ports, since users will know FreeBSD runs on VMware 4.x.

I've also add vmware-toolbox port for VMware 4.x, which is for Linux
guest.  In VMware 3.x, we FreeBSD guest user are happy to use FreeBSD
version of vmware-toolbox so we don't need the Linux version.  However,
at least my VMs, FreeBSD version's vmware-toolbox causes X pointer a
bumpy one (pointer moves every seconds); it is unusable.  Linux version
seems OK for me, so if you have seen such behavior, please try
linux-vmware-toolbox4 instead.

Old ports cleanup will come later.
