I think menu entry is missing probably due to non-existent VirtualBox
executable in $PATH.

There's only a /etc/vbox/vbox.conf with following content:

  # VirtualBox installation directory

  # vboxdrv source location

No /usr/bin/VirtualBox.  /usr/bin/VBox exists, but trying to run it
gives me "Unknown application - VBox" output.
