This is the symptom I (and others) have found that is related to selinux
on F9 and F10. Several components just plain fail to start unless
selinux is completely disabled (not just putting it i permissive mode).
Just for grins, try disabling selinux and rebooting the system. I'll bet
you will find VMware Server will compile and run without incident.
