VMware Tools The path is not valid path to the gcc binary.

You get the error message below when you run vmware-config-tools.pl on a linux
server (Debian)

"The path "" is not valid path to the gcc binary."

You need to specifically have gcc-4.3 installed on the system, do the following
and it should work fine.

apt-get install make
apt-get install gcc-4.3
apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
