It looks like the tool takes the name of the file and then the path to
the file, like:

    # ./update vmware /usr/local/lib/vmware/bin/vmware

The precompiled binary works; the one I made myself from the .c file
fails for some reason.

Ok; I've managed to patch my vmware(3) ok, but now the machine locks
solid when I click the 'run' button.   This is with a new kernel:

FreeBSD genius.tao.org.uk 5.4-PRERELEASE FreeBSD 5.4-PRERELEASE #6: Thu Mar  3 09:35:40 GMT 2005     joe at genius.tao.org.uk:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENIUS2  i386

and I've also rebuild vmware and rtc off the same kernel sources.

:( hang == no good. :(
