The log says:

:info:configure Checking for ssl: 
:info:configure   libcrypto not found at -I/opt/local/include /opt/local/lib/libcrypto.dylib /opt/local/lib/libssl.dylib or openssl headers not found

This is surprising since the virtualbox port does declare a dependency on the openssl port and the openssl port should be providing those. What's the output of:

port -v installed openssl
port contents openssl
