Virtualbox in BSD


The ports tree of freeBSD has virtualbox OSE, but I want to use the proprietary version with USB support and other features not available in OSE version. Can the proprietary version of virtualbox be installed in freeBSD?

Thanks in advance

Virtualbox OSE on FreeBSD does have USB support, its just 1.1, the 2.0 is in the Oracle proprietary plugin, and that plugin works only on officially supported platforms by VirtualBox (FreeBSD is not one of them).
