VirtualBox Guest Additions - FreeBSD Guest

Install the following package:
$ sudo pkg_add -rv virtualbox-ose-additions

After installation, you need to enable the vboxguest startscript to load the kernel module and vboxservice to use host time synchronization. Add the following to /etc/rc.conf:
vboxguest_enable="YES"
vboxservice_enable="YES"

If you haven't already done so, you also have to add all X11 users that want to use any of the additional features (clipboard sharing, window scaling) to the wheel group.
$ sudo pw groupmod wheel -m <username>

Reboot the machine to load the needed kernel modules.
$ sudo shutdown -r now
