ok great - installing qemu-devel on my system and running the following
command worked great:
qemu-img convert -f vmdk -O raw foo.vmdk foo.img
i tested this by taking a current .vmdk file from my workstation i do
development and copied it over to my new bhyve hypervisor.
this may be a good candidate for addition to wiki.freebsd.org/bhyve -
i'll go ahead and add this if no one objects.

thanks for the info on that - i unfortunately that is beyond my
bandwidth/techinical capabilities at this point. i'd love to help test
code out to do this once that day comes.
