Thank you for your contribution. I had a short look on the ebuild. 
Here a few ideas:

* Please test the ebuild with repoman full -x
* We always try to use the latest EAPI, please bump to EAPI=6
* You can drop eutils then
* many lines miss ||die, the rm commands for example
* Please be more specific in the DESCRIPTION. The objective description may be <=80 characters long.

Very unfortunately,

. . . [vmware-overlay]

had to be been closed down
and was removed from overlays/repositories.xml:

. . . Bug 627666 - vmware: no reply to project status mail

. . . [ ]

Currently up-to-date and perfectly working versions of vmware-workstation:
  - Bug 663670     and
  - Bug 671218

HINT concerning vmware-player:
  - just install above;
  - vmware-player will be included :-)
