Comment (by kencu):

 The version of VirtualBox available on MacPorts is several years out of
 date. We should probably delete it soon if nobody is prepared to update

 Looks like it's a pain to build it, as it can't use current tools and
 significant manual steps are needed to set up the build environment.

 I would vote we just delete the VirtualBox port as it's frustrating people
 who think it should work.

 Installing the binary is pretty much the only practical way to get
 VirtualBox on MacOS these days.
