i just installed pkgsrc/emulators/vmware3.  it compiled and installed without 
error, and i made the necessary modifications to rc.d and rc.conf as 
directed.  however, when i run vmware, i get the following error:

*********** snip ****************
VMware Workstation Error:
Version mismatch with vmmon module: expecting 30.0, got 10.0.
You have an incorrect version of the `vmmon' kernel module.
