Problems building the /usr/ports/emulators/vmware3 port

I just tried installing the vmware3 port and got the following response:

Upheaval# cd /usr/ports/emulators/vmware3
Upheaval# make
===>  vmware3-,1 Kernel source files required.

What kernel source files? I looked in the Makefile and I got the
impression it wanted the FreeBSD sources. But, I have them installed! I
have built a kernel from those sources so I know they are real!

Am I barking up the wrong tree? Is it the linux source it wants? Something
