I'm trying to build from amd64, but got the following error. Sorry but I
didn't look, and it's a fresh paste:

once before you start to build VBox:

  source /usr/home/benoit/src/virtualbox/work/virtualbox-2.2.2r19673/env.sh

  Hardening is enabled which means that the VBox binaries will not run from
  the binary directory. The binaries have to be installed suid root and some
  more prerequisites have to be fulfilled which is normally done by
  the final package. For development, the hardening feature can be disabled
  by specifying the --disable-hardening parameter. Please never disable that
  feature for the final distribution!
