[PATCH]: Ignore VMWare Fusion interfaces on MACOSX
From: Kurt Grutzmacher <grutz () jingojango net>
Date: Fri, 24 Aug 2007 22:34:32 -0500

So the problem with those using Intel Macs, VMWare Fusion and Nmap isn't
really solvable by us because the problem is with the "interfaces"
created by Fusion. They don't permit BPF access for some really weird
reason. This patch skips over any interface that has "vmnet" in it so
the getinterfaces() function won't error out because of the failed
ioctl() call from libdnet (line 60, eth_open() in eth-bsd.c)
