      The 001vmware.sh file does not provide any value for "networking" on an SMP machine, regardless of network information provided in the configuration screen (same result regardless of input).

This causes a "[: -eq: unexpected operator" syntax error from 001vmware.sh when run.
      "make install" in the VMware3 ports directory followed by "sh /usr/local/rc.d/001vmware.sh start" seems pretty reliable.
      The ugly workaround is obvious (edit the script), a real fix is unknown. 

Clearly, the @@NETWORKING@@ tag in files/001vmware.sh is replaced with an empty string -yet Makefile.inc.net has the correct contents generated by the "dialog" run.
