kldload: can't load /usr/local/lib/vmware/lib/modules/vmmon.ko: Exec
format error
kldload: can't load /usr/local/lib/vmware/lib/modules/vmnet.ko: Exec
format error cannot create /dev/vmnet1: no such device or address
jules# dmesg
link_elf: symbol linux_ioctl_register_handler undefined
link_elf: symbol linux_ioctl_register_handler undefined

the symbols are present and the linux module is loaded.
link-elf is just incapable of seeing symbols in the module, 
only in the actual kernel.

if you compile with COMPAT_LINUX
it all works fine.
