Get notified when packages are built

A new feature has been added. FreshPorts already tracks package built by the FreeBSD project. This information is displayed on each port page. You can now get an email when FreshPorts notices a new package is available for something on one of your watch lists. However, you must opt into that. Click on Report Subscriptions on the right, and New Package Notification box, and click on Update.

Finally, under Watch Lists, click on ABI Package Subscriptions to select your ABI (e.g. FreeBSD:14:amd64) & package set (latest/quarterly) combination for a given watch list. This is what FreshPorts will look for.

emulators/virtualbox-ose: Put vbox/networks.conf in the right place

Since virtualbox-ose 6.1.26 a new networks.conf file has been
introduced and the software looks for it in /etc/vbox.

This commit introduces a patch to make virtualbox look for it in

To help users with configurations already using this file in /etc/vbox
notes to UPDATING, pkg-message and to the main virtualbox executable
script have been added.

Also adding some comments to the Makefile to note that QA warning
due to reinplace being run but not having changed any file are
expected due to the design of this port Makefile.

emulators/virtualbox-ose: Update to 6.1.26

This new version has a regression in the pulseaudio host audio
driver. If enabled any VMs configured to use it fails to start.

Since no fix has been found the PULSEAUDIO option is forcibly
disabled. If you have any VM configured to use pulseaudio for audio
input/output, please reconfigure them to use a different driver.

Upstream ticket:

Other changes:

- Remove old patches that don't apply, the audio system has been
  reworked upstream and the behavior of these patches is included in
  the new code
- Add upgrading pkg-message note about the PULSEAUDIO option issue
  described above

- Remove emulators/virtualbox port. Renamed to emulators/virtualbox-ose
  and seperate port for the kernel modules created:

- Update to 3.1.2
- Update guest additions to 3.1.2
- Port has been renamed to virtualbox-ose to reflect that we are using
  the OSE version. [1]
- Added proper PulseAudio support for FreeBSD [2]
- procfs is not required anymore because vbox uses sysctl(3) now [3]
- Update pkg-message to reflect recent changes
- Add nox's FreeBSD host networking patches that are now also in the
  upstream vbox svn (modulo vbox variable naming style adjustments:)
  1. Allow direct tap networking again (for users that need the best
  network performance and/or need more complex network setups, like when
  they want to use routing instead of bridging to e.g. protect from guests
  messing with the lan's arp tables; a tap + routing + proxy arp example
  is in the above freebsd-emulation posting.)
  2. Enable vbox' shared mac feature when using bridged mode on a wifi
  interface, together with the virtualbox-ose-kmod change this
  should fix bridged mode for wifi users. [4]

- Update to 3.1.2
- Add rc.d script to load kernel modules
- Fix build with a non-standard location for the system source [5]
- Merge aeichner's vboxnetflt fix committed to upstream vbox svn
  (thanks!) that makes the shared mac feature enabled above actually work
  on FreeBSD hosts. [6]

Please see for update instructions.

Many thanks to the VirtualBox developers, all tester, patch submitter and
the whole vbox@ team.
