I am running an ESXi 5.1 VMware server, with one FreeBSD (8.3) guest.

I am trying to figure how to install the VMware tools:

- the linux one are working, but I woul prefere a more native FreeBSD

- should I install /usr/ports/emulators/vmware-guest6d ? It fails with
  not finding vmware-guestd.

- should I install /usr/ports/emulators/vmware-tools6 ? It seems it
  needs vmware-guest6d as a prerequisite.

What else? All documentation I find on the web refers to a VMwareTools
for FreeBSD, that I could not locate.

Help please.
