Maybe he doesn't run 3 because it also doesn't build:

/usr/ports/emulators/vmware3/work/vmware-distrib/vmmon-only/freebsd/driver.c:303:35: 
i386/isa/intr_machdep.h: No such file or directory

So same thing with vmware3 - note that the file (intr_machdep.h) doesn't 
exist in that location - but it does in other locations.  I tried 
copying one of the others over to that spot, and rebuilding, but still 
fails (with new errors as expected)..

:(
