well - nobody is forcing you to use akmod
there are kmod-open-vm-tools AND akmod-open-vm-tools
as example i have the akmod-packages on the buildmachine
if there is an important security-kernel-update and kmod
packages not available this machine builds the binaries
the other machines get the kernel-update via deployment-scripts
AND the pre-compiled kernel-modules from akmod
