Will VMWare 5.5 run on FreeBSD 6.x ?

I notice VMWare 5.5 worked with Redhat 8, and FreeBSD 6 uses Redhat 8 for
its linux emulation.

Does the Linux version of VMWare 5.5 work on FreeBSD 6.x ?

I saw the VM 5.5 toolbox and some kind of "guest daemon" in the ports tree,
but it didn't look like VMWare 5.5 itself was in there.

I bought VMWare 5.5 for Linux, and assumed I'd have to run Ubuntu to use it,
but I would prefer FreeBSD.
