Since yesterday I cannot compile the vbox svn source tree.
I get the following error:

kmk[2]: Entering directory `.../svn/vbox'
kBuild: Linking VBoxRT
kBuild: Installing VBoxOGLcrutil => .../svn/vbox/out/linux.x86/release/bin/additions/VBoxOGLcrutil.so

kmk[2]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
kmk[2]: Leaving directory `/extra2/tmp/tmp/svn/vbox'

I am not an expert of kmk. it tries to compile pam_vbox.cpp instead
of pam_vbox.c.

Is there an expert out there that can fix this bug?

(Currently I have used the (dirty) workaround to create a symbolic link from
pam_vbox.c to pam_vbox.cpp...)
