Linux: VMware Tools on Red Hat or CentOS Prerequisites

This should do it:
yum install perl gcc make kernel-headers kernel-devel audit binutils glibc-headers

If vmware tools install cannot find your linux headers, throw these in too and try again:
yum install kernel-headers-`uname -r` kernel-devel-`uname -r`
