Uhh, yeah. Virtualbox not working with the newest gsoap was to be expected. I 
had to report multiple times that it didn't compile with 2.7.13 until it got 
fixed. So this is an upstream bug and there's pretty much nothing apart from 
reporting it that we can do.

I know about that bug, it's fixed in my local version and will be part of the 
update I'll submit soon. I still need a bit of testing time though :)
Basically VBOXUSERS=no will disappear, it was a hack anyway. For future 
version having the vboxusers group will be obligatory.
