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

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.

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.
