Had starting problems with this Version.

The Problem:
Code:
emerge vmware-server --config


Configuring pkg...

 * Running /opt/vmware/server/bin/vmware-config.pl
Making sure services for VMware Server are stopped.

* WARNING: vmware is already stopped
Unable to stop services for VMware Server

Execution aborted.


The Fix is:

Code:
/opt/vmware/server/bin/vmware-config.pl  skip-stop-start


Old Versions seems to use
Code:
-skipstopstart


Hope somebody helps this.

Code:

/opt/vmware/server/bin/vmware-config.pl  skip-stop-start

Should instead be
Code:

/opt/vmware/server/bin/vmware-config.pl  -skip-stop-start


Which worked for me using this version.
