FreeBSD, VBox, mouse integration

Ok, so when I used
% pkg_info | grep virtualbox
on my host or guest machine I receive output: "pkg_info: no packages
installed". But we have network booting there, root directories are copied
from other machine, so when I used this command on this main machine, the
output was:

virtualbox-ose-4.2.12 A general-purpose full virtualizer for x86 hardware
virtualbox-ose-additions-4.2.12_1 VirtualBox additions for FreeBSD guests
virtualbox-ose-kmod-4.2.12 VirtualBox kernel module for FreeBSD

When I started vboxservice on guest machine I got output:

OS Version: FreeBSD 9.1-STABLE #0: Sat May 11
OS Service Pack: FreeBSD 9.1-STABLE #0: Sat May 11
Package type: BSD_64BIST_GENERIC(OSE)
4.2.12_OSE r84980 started. Verbose level = 0

Is it fine ? What to do now ?
