By default, building in DPDK (including in stable-17.11.4) is by creating static
libs (*.a) and not shared libs (*so).
What does cat build/.config | grep -i shared show ?
If you have CONFIG_RTE_BUILD_SHARED_LIB=y, this means that
you use shared libs, and in such a case, a VMXNET3 *.so should be
generated in the build
(librte_pmd_vmxnet3_uio.so), and if indeed the testpmd app you use was built in
a tree where CONFIG_RTE_BUILD_SHARED_LIB is "y",
then the librte_pmd_vmxnet3_uio.so should be under /usr/lib64/... folder
so it will work.
It seems that the best thing is to rebuild the DPKD tree (after make
clean) and reinstall it.
