I've been following the FreeBSD port through svn.bluelife.at.

Up to revision 508, everything was fine. On Rev 519 (or before, i'm not sure), 
the port was split into 3. virtualbox, virtualbox-additions and virtualbox-

There is no problem building virtualbox-kmod. and virtualbox. The modules load 
without errors and virtualbox starts fine. But when I try to start a VM I get 

00:00:00.644 ERROR [COM]: aRC=NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005) aIID={0a51994b-

It is as if virtualbox can't "see" that the modules ARE loaded, and connect to 

If I revert to the previous version (with the modules compiled together with 
virtualbox), everything works again.

Please let me know if this is not the "right" list for this post.
