Thanks for the report Ravindra. If you could provide a patch updating the port that would be appreciated.

I've found this patch (TODO: where did I got this?) and need someone to run-test it.
Ah, found it: that patch comes from the maintainer, see

pi@ reached out to me about this PR. I'll take the patch, rebase it, then do some run tests on my ^/head through ^/stable/9 VMs.

Remove /usr/lib/debug directory removal -- this doesn't need to be done on ^/head@r313995 .
(In reply to Ngie Cooper from comment #7)
Thanks for adding the patch from the CFT, I'd updated it with the change to remove the /usr/lib/debug directory removal already, perhaps you had an older version? I'll update it to remove the change to patch-vmmemctl-os.c since (a different version of) that is already committed. I'd appreciate any feedback on the updated version.

The new patch doesn't work on 12.0-CURRENT @ r314359:
install -m 0644 /usr/ports/emulators/open-vm-tools/work/open-vm-tools-10.1.0-4449150/open-vm-tools/modules/freebsd/vmblock.ko /usr/ports/emulators/open-vm-tools/work/stage/usr/local/lib/vmware-tools/modules/drivers/vmblock.ko
install: /usr/ports/emulators/open-vm-tools/work/open-vm-tools-10.1.0-4449150/open-vm-tools/modules/freebsd/vmblock.ko: No such file or directory
*** Error code 71
(In reply to Ngie Cooper from comment #11)
Ok. This has to deal with the fact that there's an issue with PORTS_MODULES and WRKDIRPREFIX where if I feed in MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX for WRKDIRPREFIX, it will cause build failures as noted below (which isn't new to the port version upgrade, probably).

Updated patch 2017/02/28
Here's another update which solves the issue in PR 209853 by having the service start/stop automatically and set the tools version to 0 on uninstall.
testbuilds now run to completion in my poudriere setup on 12a@r311651, 11a and 10i.
There's a newer version 10.1.5 out.
