Description Olli Hauer 2008-08-03 15:00:06 UTC
the port installes vmware-guestd twice, once in ${PREFIX}/sbin and once in ${PREFIX}/bin.

vmware-guestd is installed in ${PREFIX}/sbin by the port own makescript
<-- snip from make -vv package start -->
 Making install in vmSignal
 Making install in wiper
 Making install in guestd
 test -z "/usr/local/sbin" || .././install-sh -c -d "/usr/local/sbin"
   /bin/sh ../libtool --mode=install install  -s -o root -g wheel -m 555 'vmware- guestd' '/usr/local/sbin/vmware-guestd'
 install -o root -g wheel -m 555 -s vmware-guestd /usr/local/sbin/vmware-guestd
<-- snip from make -vv package end -->

<-- snip line from port Makefile start -->
       ${INSTALL} ${WRKSRC}/guestd/vmware-guestd ${PREFIX}/bin/vmware-guestd
</-- snip line from port Makefile end -->

small correction to the rc script:
-checkvm_cmd="${PREFIX}/sbin/vmware-checkvm > /dev/null"
+checkvm_cmd="${PREFIX}/bin/vmware-checkvm > /dev/null"

I have this checked only for open-vm-tools-nox11, since i have nowhere X installed

Fix: Patch attached with submission follows:
How-To-Repeat: Install port emulators/open-vm-tools-nox11
find /usr/local/ -name "vmw*"
=> two versions of vmware-guestd

deinstall the port
find /usr/local/ -name "vmw*"
/usr/local/sbin/vmware-guestd => since pkg-plist knows only the one in ${PREFIX}/bin
