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-guestd6, 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.

More fix on X modules.

The X server modules (display driver and mouse driver) bundled with
VMware Tools doesn't work with X.Org 7.2 server.  So install these
modules if and only if X is actually XFree86 4.x.

Also fix pkg-plist (sorry the last commit makes plist broken.)

Bump vmware-tools6 PORTREVISION to note the changes above.

For X.Org 7.2 users:
        x11-drivers/xf86-video-vmware is the video driver for VMs, that
        is installed by default.

        x11-drivers/xf86-input-vmmouse is the mouse driver for VMs.
        However, it doesn't need if vmware-toolbox runs.

Introducing VMware Tools for VMware Workstation 6 beta 3.

As usual, all three ports are updated after repocoping from
version 5 ports (this is why this ports is 'committed,' not 'imported.')

Note to 7-current users: vmware-guestd and other binaries requires
libc.so.6 to work.  Since there is no misc/compat6x yet, this ports
is marked as 'IGNORE' if there is no libc.so.6.
