> Changes:
>   - Fix build error when compiling in debug mode on FreeBSD HEAD
>   - SemEvent?-r0drv/FreeBSD: Don't use tvtohz for an infinite timeout. 
>   - Some FreeBSD relate typos
>   - Enable shared OpenGL service. Completely untested due to lack of
>     appropriate hardware but it compiles at least 
>   - Add support for shared clipboards. Requires libXt
>   - FreeBSD: Implement preemption API for guest SMP and enable
>     it (slightly tested). Add neccessary RTMP* methods in userspace
>     for the frontends to detect the number of CPUs
>   - Runtime/semevent-r0drv-freebsd: Use a sleeping mutex
>     instead of a spinlock to fix the problems users are seeing
>     (assertions with debugging enabled) while still being able
>     to run on 100Hz hosts. No problems detected so far and Solaris
>     doesn't use a spin mutex in this code too so it shouldn't do
>     any harm (keeping fingers crossed)space for the frontends to
>     detect the number of CPUs
>   - Add support for curl
>   - Add VBoxSharedClipboard
> Ports Changes;
>   - Force guestadditions version to 2.2.4
>   - Removed Qt3 include replacements (already upstream)
>   - Removed cosmetic X11 include path patch
> Please make SURE, your world and kernel is in sync and you've read

ok, so some time has passed, but virtualbox-2.2.51r20457.tar.gz is no
longer available, there is a  ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/distfiles/virtualbox-2.2.51r20457.tar.bz2
then again in ports/emulatores/virtualbox the version is 3.0.51r22226,

can someone please explain?
