RHEL5 downloads lacks PulseAudio support

Description

The RHEL5 downloads lacks support for the PulseAudio audio driver. This seems to be true for both the 32 and 64 bit version.

PulseAudio is not included in the proper RHEL5 distribution, but is available as an EPEL addon.

It should also be noted that there's really no reason not to include PulseAudio support, since VirtualBox will work even if the libraries are missing, since libpulse.so is linked in via dlopen().

The generic download VirtualBox-3.0.6-52130-Linux_amd64.run works fine, but a RPM package is easier to deal with.

Right. The next maintenance release (3.1.4) will provide RHEL5 packages with PulseAudio enabled.
