On 6.2-RELEASE vmware compiled without problems from ports collection. You 
just need kernel sources to be installed.
Actually in addition you need to retrieve a key from vmware to unlock the 
vmware workstation. I was not able to find out a free solution longer than 
for a testing period (of 30 days as far as I remember).
Anyhow for me connecting to a windows server using rdesktop was an alternative 
to emulationg windows with wmware.
