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 and dual-boot
configulation files.  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.

This port assumes that a) users want only "must-have" binaries and
b) guest OS runs on a certain architecture and never be changed.  For
those want full-feature of VMware Tools, use the installer bundled with
VMware Tools instead.

Packaging bugfix: we don't need ${X11BASE}/etc/rc.d/vmware-guestd{,.sh}

vmware-guestd{,.sh} script is just for vmware-guestd5 port, not vmware-tools5.
However, USE_RC_SUBR variable is defined for vmware-tools5, the script
is installed even if it is not needed.

Bump PORTREVISION to note this change.

Fix some errors, including:

- Build fix when WITH_VMWARE_GTK is set.
- Reorder pkg-plist so that @unexec vmware-guestd.sh successfully done.
- Create directories for server modules, since xserver may not be installed.

Even though this makes no "installed" content change, but bump
PORTREVISION since pkg-plist/pkg-plist.tools are changed.

Move /etc/vmware-tools/* files to vmware-tools5, since VMware Player

Bump PORTREVISION for both vmware-tools5 and vmware-guestd5.

Add PORTREVISION line to vmware-tools5, so this port may have its own
revision number.  It may help to avoid unwanted version bump to
vmware-tools5 if vmware-guestd5 specific changes are happen to
vmware-guestd5/Makefile.

Since no content changes at this time, no bump.

Dear VMware Workstation users around the world, here is an upgrade of
VMware Workstation FreeBSD-guest related ports for VMware Workstation
5.5.0 build 18463.

New features are:

- Spell "VMware Workstation" appropriately.
        There are much VMware products, it would be the time that I have
        to spell VMware Workstation as VMware Workstation.
- Support FreeBSD/amd64 since 64-bit binaries are provided from VMware.
        I don't test any of 64-bit related portion, since I have no
        FreeBSD/amd64 machine.  If something trouble please email me.
- New variable "WITH_VMWARE_GTK" (emulators/vmware-tools5)
        Install gtk version of VMware Tools if defined
        (add more dependencies on other gtk-related ports)
