Do shared folders from vbox hosts to freebsd guests work as i cant seem to
mount them? I have the guest additions installed fine.

s11 host

vbox at radical:~$ VBoxManage list runningvms
"router" {daa9e421-7730-4f77-b97c-d931c107e50d}
vbox at radical:~$ VBoxManage list runningvms -l| ggrep -iA 2  share
Shared folders:

Name: 'new', Host path: '/videos/new' (machine mapping), writable
vbox at radical:~$ uname -a
SunOS radical.intranet 5.11 11.1 i86pc i386 i86pc
