I've got an error at my 8-CURRENT tinderbox:
====================<phase 7: make package>====================
===>  Building package for virtualbox-2.2.2r19673
tar: lib/virtualbox/VBoxREM32.so: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
tar: lib/virtualbox/VBoxREM64.so: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
tar: Removing leading '/' from member names
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.
pkg_create: make_dist: tar command failed with code 256

Seems that for 64 bit platform none of VBoxREM[32|64].so are

BTW, those who are interested at the subject from mail lists
ports@, emulation@ and current@ already knows the great news.
May be it's time to move to one list, say, virtualization@?
