After updating to latest gcc, I rebooted .2990 and ran
'vmware-config.pl'.  No compilation messages, and vmware runs fine.

Doesn't look like a compiler issue.....

Ok, thanks for that, I'll look at what's changed in the kernel headers
in that case.

Well it looks like it is the CFLAGS parameters in the kernel Makefile that is causing the problem. I.e. /usr/src/kernels/2.6.20-1.2997.fc7-x86_64/Makefile or /usr/src/kernels/2.6.20-1.2999.fc7-x86_64/Makefile. You need to replace the -Wextra parameter with -Wundef that is around line 318 in the Makefile. This will allow VMWare tp build again without an error.

CFLAGS          := -Wall -Wundef -Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-trigraphs \
                  -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common \
    -Werror-implicit-function-declaration \
    -Wundef -Wno-unused-parameter -Wno-missing-field-initializers
##     -Wextra -Wno-unused-parameter -Wno-missing-field-initializers
