VirtualBox won't build from ports

I find it a little odd that a clean install of FreeBSD 11.0 on amd64 
followed by:

portsnap fetch ; portsnap extract
echo "DISABLE_LICENSES=yes" > /etc/make.conf
echo "BATCH=yes" >> /etc/make.conf
cd /usr/ports/emulators/virtualbox-ose
make install clean

fails. What's the recommended (and non-embarrassing) way to set up a clean 
FreeBSD installation with VirtualBox?

Here's the error:
