This was fixed in VirtualBox a long time ago.  Maybe they did not actually
fix it for some of their feature combinations which they set per-CPU.

What is the exact host CPU, and does it support VT-x/AMD-V?

VirtualBox 3.2.g works great for me with NetBSD-5 on an Intel Core 2 Duo
system with OS/X host OS and the NetBSD VM configured like this:

        Operating System:       BSD
        Version:                NetBSD
        Processors:             2
        VT-X/AMD-V:             Enabled
        Nested Paging:          Disabled
        Enable I/O APIC:        yes
        Enable PAE/NX:          yes

This is with the i386 port of NetBSD but I have tested the amd64 port in
the past and it worked, too.
