VMware tools support FreeBSD _guest_ OS running on VMware Workstation.
Beware, this port is _not_ for FreeBSD _host_ OS.

VMware tools for FreeBSD consist of vmware-toolbox which supports
seamless operation between the Host and the Guest OS, dual-boot
configulation files, and special XFree86 3.x server for Guest OS.
However, we cannot install dual-boot configuration since it requires
to modify /etc files.

This ports will install vmware-toolbox to your computer.  You may use 'vmware'
driver for X server.  Vmware-guestd is installed as a separate port,
ports/emulators/vmware-guestd4, but this port install guestd automatically.

Deprecate ports related to no more support vmware versions

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.

Fixup for package cluster building.

- Mark NO_PACKAGE since these ports require VMware itself.
  (and avoid using .ifdef(PACKAGE_BUILDING) also)
- Forget to mark IS_INTERACTIVE if !BATCH (vmware-guest4).

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.
