I'll try to be nice but it is still unclear to me what you want. The file
is available on all 4 master sites that are listed in the ports Makefile.

The virtualbox port is still in heavy development so it is strongly
recommended that you use the latest version that is in the ports. If that
also does not work you could give our svn version a try but be careful
with it because it can break in strange ways or destroy your virtual
