I know about this already. Comment further down :)

Mmm, sort of.
I still think /usr/src is the most appropriate location for kernel module
sources, that's why I placed them there initially. The vbox-devs implemented
rc.vboxdrv setup way later and went unnoticed until recently.
My position on this is that I'm not going to fix it for 12.2, as it's a non-
issue from my perspective. I see no valid reason an init-script should compile
kernel-modules. Everyone who needs to recompile the kernel module for a newer
kernel can either use the virtualbox-kernel.SlackBuild or go to /usr/src and
build it by hand.
I have it already "fixed" for 13.0 in the form of removing "setup" completely.
