Virtualbox is built using apple-gcc-4.2 that in turn uses ld64.
I remembered having a non working emulator with evidence pointing at
the build chain, royliu provided a fix [1] in r101907. So when my VMs
had the same issue I cut it short, I rebuilt ld64 and since it
produced a  working virtualbox I pushed it, maybe too quick.
Unluckily I'm short on time lately so I didn't investigate any
further, I apologize for being hurry.

I'll remove the comment about updating ld64.
