iokit now compiles. However, SVN as a whole still doesn't build, as src/VBox/HostDrivers/Makefile.kmk still has these lines:

if1of ($(KBUILD_TARGET), darwin)
 include $(PATH_SUB_CURRENT)/VBoxNetFlt/Makefile.kmk

VBox/HostDrivers/VBoxNetFlt doesn't exist in the OSE version. This is right underneath a block of code that only applies given VBOX_WITH_USB; is this possibly another case of only working with USB support, and there's an endif in the wrong place?

That sounds reasonable. I'd been concerned that the definition for DARWIN_IOKIT_LOG was occasionally "Log(a)" and occasionally "RTPrintf a", but actually running it through the preprocessor seems to show that Log itself is a macro too.
