Here is a good description of the problem:

http://www.virtuallifestyle.nl/2008/...-vmware-tools/

which also links to this thread in VMware:

http://communities.vmware.com/message/1067686

I think this is a better workaround than the one you posted:
http://it-to-fit.at/doku.php/mywiki:...-install-lenny

baseservices:/home/user# export CC=gcc-4.1
baseservices:/home/user# export GXX=g++-4.1

I actually tried the one you linked first but it still did not compile and I needed the GXX=.

It also appears I am slightly out of touch with VMware as the server console is kind of depreciated but you can still use their other tools to manage a vmware server without using the browser with a good install.

It might be that getting this to compile is not doable but in my experience... anything is possible with linux.
