In that case I would consider starting a separate thread on whether it makes sense to use source control with FrameMaker projects, see what folks' experience is.
Unless you have a pretty sure-shot answer (or opinion) one way or the other.

If your source is in source control, that's where it is.
It makes no difference whether you're running FrameMaker or whatever locally or in a VM. You would install, configure, and use it in exactly the same way.
Your source control system won't know the difference. It's the same client running at a different IP address.
