Hardware vendor supplied modules

I see a problem with hardware (and software) vendors modules that are supplied in source code (see for instance VMWare kernel modules). If you can't compile a kernel module without the kernel source tree and on a different machine (maybe with different compiler/processor and whatnot) from the distibutor kernel, you can't use such modules.
Or I am missing something?
