Now I am completely baffled. I just checked the archive and there was never a
5.2.12_1. I see no way that the package virtualbox-ose-5.2.12_1 could exist.

That said, you need to get the kmod port for 5.2.12. To do that:
$ svn update -r 469570 /usr/ports/emulators/virtualbox-ose-kmod

That will downgrade the port to a version that matches the package for
virtualbox-ose. (PORTREVISION should not matter.) Then you can build the port.
If you need it on multiple system, do a "make package" so that you will have a
package you can just copy to other systems and install with "pkg add
/usr/ports/packages/All/virtualbox-ose-kmod-5.2.12.txz". This assumes that you
have not set any environmental variable that overrides the default location.

This is a fairly ugly mess that should never have happened. When it did, I
think the proper action would have been to build a package of 5.2.12 on an 11.2
system an put it somewhere on the ftp server. (The same applies to the nVidia
driver which has a similar issue.) This would have been documented in the

But I have no say in this and what you see is what ports-manager chose to do.

I can make a package you need available, but, if I was you, I would not trust a
driver from an unknown source. Let me know if you want it, though.
