Updated devel/kbuild pkg to the latest SVN revision r3127 to build VirtualBox Guest Addtions 5.x under -current (this machine).

attempt to use VirtualBox Guest Edditions for NetBSD/amd64 guest then
find that latest version of VirtualBox needs latest SVN revision of
kBuild to be built.

Here is the patch against current pkgsrc/devel/kbuild.

Since the SVN revision has no archive for distribution, we need to 
obtain the source tree with the svn checkout or export command from 
its SVN repository.

I don't know how to handle this case, so I make an archive from the
svn exported source tree and use it as a distfile.
Or should we specify svn to BUILD_DEPENDS and execute "svn export in
make extract stage?
