I'm trying to install the port /usr/ports/emulators/vmware-guestd6 (even
the freshest from FreeBSD server) in 8-CURRENT:

current# pwd
current# mv vmware-guestd6 vmware-guestd6.old
current# tar xzf ~guru/vmware-guestd6.tar.gz
current# cd vmware-guestd6
current# make
===>  Vulnerability check disabled, database not found

Choose "VM" -> "Install VMware Tools..." from VMware Workstation
menu to connect VM's CD-ROM drive and installation CD image temporary.
Press "Install" button when a dialog pops up.

This port mounts /dev/acd0 to /mnt.

Are you ready? [Y/n]: y
/bin/mkdir -p /mnt
/sbin/umount /mnt 2>&1 >/dev/null

Stop in /usr/ports/emulators/vmware-guestd6.

there is no directory work/vmware-tools-distrib/lib/sbin32-6 but only

creating a symlink helps a bit but later it can't find vmware-guestd for
installation which is not there, i.e. not in the tar file of the

Any ideas?
