I posted to the VMware server "community", and after a couple of go-rounds, got
the answer: in the linux source tree, I had to do a make cloneconfig, and that
created all the other files I needed, no kernel rebuild necessary.

Still not sure if the utsrelease.h that I manually created was also necessary,
but it was there....

Thanks, all.
