As Adam mentioned, I have launched an initial effort in pkgsrc-wip[1].
It's currently at the state where work needs to begin on the kernel
module (/dev/vboxdrv) as well as the userland part that talks to it.
I've imported empty stub routines in the files/ directory to allow the
userland part to build, but much work remains here. A related issue
with virtualbox is that we need to find out exactly why NetBSD doesn't
work as a guest OS. There are some possible theories in this[2] thread.
