If the license is ok, I'd like to give it a try (unless someone more 
experienced wants to do it - I might need occasional support).  We'll 
probably need to distribute the entire VirtualBox source [1] as SRPM, 
even if we just build the Guest Additions - they seem to at least 
include header files living outside the src/VBox/Additions directory.
