License: not specified in port
This is the VMware module for XFree86 4.x. It should only be used inside of a
VMWare guest as it refers only to the virtualized "hardware" available to
an operating system running under VMware. Use the following in your XF86Config
file:

Section "Device"
	Identifier "VMware SVGA"
	Driver "vmware"
	BusID	"PCI:0:15:0"
EndSection

The BusID line is required or X will think that the virtual ISA VGA card
(where the text screens live) is the primary one and it will fail.

Be sure to use the same depth on the guest as you do on the host or the
X server won't start. You can arrange for this simply by not including a
"DefaultDepth" line. The driver will then supply the correct default.

- Add the X_WINDOW_SYSTEM={xorg,xfree86-4,xfree86-3} variable to bsd.port.mk,

- Make xorg the default X_WINDOW_SYSTEM on -current.
- Add several new X_*_PORT variables which point to various pieces of X11 based
  on the setting of X_WINDOW_SYSTEM, and make ports use them.
- Add information to CHANGES about how to handle the transition.

Set an expiry date of 2004-08-20 for these BROKEN/IGNORE/FORBIDDEN
ports.  They will be removed on or after that date if they are still
broken and no fix has been submitted to GNATS.

Correct ports that were abusing the FORBIDDEN variable and replace with
either IGNORE or BROKEN.

Since there seems to be some confusion, for the record:

BROKEN          is reserved for ports that don't work.  This will prevent
                users from installing the port, but please note that
                ports marked as BROKEN will still be built by bento
IGNORE          is reserved for ports that should not be built for one
                reason or another (including bento).  Users and bento
                will not build ports marked as IGNORE.
FORBIDDEN       is reserved for security breakages only!!!  Only mark a
                port as FORBIDDEN if there is a security issue with the
                port at the time.

Release all my ports.

kris made it clear that by his measure I'm not doing my job as a port
maintainer. Far be it from me to be an obstruction to the project.

Deprecate this port as the module has been imported into XFree86.

Stupid. It depends on vmware in the HOST, not the guest. :-(
