Re: VirtualBox Guest Additions anyone?

Thanks for the info. I tried it and was able easily to build 
$ kmk --version
kmk - kBuild version 0.1.9998 (r3126)

with which I was able to carry on building VirtualBox 5.1.30 much further. It stopped eventually:

kmk: *** Exiting with status 2

and indeed under the SUPR3 directory one can see 

darwin  freebsd  linux  os2  posix  solaris  testcase  win

but no netbsd. As far as I understand it, the freebsd folder contains the source of a kernel module vboxdrv... 

I'll check tomorrow the building of only the guest additions for NetBSD.

That package is ancient and has wrong patches iirc. :)

I think current vbox sources need a more recent version of kmk anyway,
so even my old pre-build kbuild binaries will probably not work.
That's why I mentioned kbuild svn.  You most likely must build the

Grab the sources from


and look at the build instructions here:


Bootstrapping requires gmake, autoconf, automake, gettext-lib and

You will also need to pass LDFLAGS=-lutil in the environment to that
bootstrap command.

If you don't have svn on the NetBSD machine you are building on, add
SvnInfo.kmk in the root of the source tree with

  KBUILD_SVN_URL := http://svn.netlabs.org/repos/kbuild/trunk
  KBUILD_SVN_REV := 3126 # or whatever
