I've just tried the latest port. It compiles fine and I'm able to load the module without problems...however now I'm unable to start VirtualBox...I get a strange dialog saying: "Failed to load the global GUI configuration from .
The application will now terminate."
Details -> Collee RC: NS_ERROR_ABORT (0x80004004)

of course I don't have any GUI configurations saved. I've previously deleted all config/tmp/etc files associated with VirtualBox.

this is the console output:

# VirtualBox
Type Manifest File: /root/.VirtualBox/xpti.dat
nsNativeComponentLoader: autoregistering begins.
nsNativeComponentLoader: autoregistering succeeded
nNCL: registering deferred (0)

and this I get after pressing the OK button of this error dialog

this was not the case with the previous port, I could start VirtualBox and even create a virtual machine and start installation of windows...and there it was crashing...on the windows installation
