Thanks - that was the problem, it seems.
I compile vbox on a vbox vm, and it seems since the installation of the GA
3.2.0 beta1, no time sync had happened ...
Thus, the unpacked sources were far newer than the current system time.

I'll check whether the time sync problem re-occurs with GA 3.2.0beta3, using
3.1.6 or 3.1.8 as host system.

Thanks again,
