Unless you have a patch, I'm going to refer you to VMWare for support on this, since you're having an issue with their code, not mine. My suggestion is to fix your build environment. It looks like you need to run gcc-config or something, but without more information, I can't tell what you need to do.

Neither do I know what happened. I did not upgrade my kernel. It worked fine for months until a recent package updates.

Doh!! Just found out an environmental variable (VERSION) was set by something else. That threw off the make process. Compilation went smoothly after removing that variable. Ouch.
