x11-drivers/xf86-input-vmmouse and x11-drivers/xf86-video-vmware ports.

Alternatively, run "make config" in x11-drivers/xorg-drivers, check the
"VMMOUSE" and "VMWARE" entries, and rebuild this meta-port.

Btw, I have no idea why these drivers are not enabled by default.  They
would seem very useful in a default installation.
