This issue has been mentioned several times in the FreeBSD community, 
and from what we can tell it's a yasm regression... The VirtualBox code 
didn't change much (besides recently fixing a yasm version detection 
which wasn't trivial as they spotted an opcode typo, and as usual 
VirtualBox uses all the exotic stuff so needs to adapt).

The port maintainer frequently hangs out on IRC (freenode/#vbox-dev), 
but I don't think there is any good solution known yet.
