[vbox-dev] SVN GAs Linux

I was able to work around this by building GAs on a Debian SID guest.

I also tried to revert 
//////https://www.virtualbox.org/changeset/41381/vbox but that didn't 
seem to help.

Currently using a host with a newer GLIBC and building the GAs will not 
work on guests that use an older version.
