Hm, here -current is working well as a guest on VirtualBox 3.0.{5,6,8}
hosted on (Open)Solaris. (3.0.5 is a special version of VBox for use
with SUN VDI). I started using a 5.0 release CD as the iso build form
-current didn't like to boot and upgraded to -current. The Operton 2222
system is quite slow (maybe there are some BIOS-switches to change this,
but haven't investigated yet), but on a new Xeon W3540 "PC" NetBSD on
VirtualBox is nearly as fast as running native on an AMD Phenom X4 9650.
I can provide more data (HW/SW/VM/NetBSD configuration, results of "time ... distribution" etc.) if needed.
