Hi,


Thanks to Bird's (from IRC #vbox-devs) work and advices, I could spent
some of my spare time trying to enhance VirtualBox's FreeBSD status.

Here is an attached patch that fixes : 

- 'configure' : should properly detect FreeBSD libraries and headers
- Makefiles.kmk fixes.


At the moment, you can compile the whole tree (With QT/SDL/XPCOM...).
You can run some virtual machines with VBoxBFE (and no acceleration).

 But VirtualBox still has big problems:

* Some code parts to fix (#warning @compile)
* XPCom Virtual Object creation while running VirtualBox (Error
0x80004005)
* Strange message'QSettings::sync: filename is null/empty' when compile
VirtualBox/ui/
* Kernel module not ready.

I'd appreciate if you could review my patch & drop it in subversion. 


Thx

Olivier Fauchon 


PS: Apply the patch this way
- svn co http://virtualbox.org/svn/vbox/trunk vbox
- patch <  /patch/to/vbox-freebsd-of-160907.patch.gz
- ./configure
- sourve env.sh
- kmk

To run a virtual machine: 

$ cd out/freebsd.x86/release/bin

~/my_livecd.iso  -boot d
