[vbox-dev] [PATCH] Enable vbox to build on FreeBSD HEAD

Hi,

as Frank mentioned the assertion is due to the missing proc filesystem.
The kernel module can be found in out/freebsd.x86/debug/bin/vboxdrv.ko.
It is compiled during the VirtualBox build process. I don't know
if the port installs it in the appropriate location but you can load it
with kldload ./vboxdrv.ko if you are in the binary directory.

Kind regards,
Alexander Eichner
