[Slackbuilds-users] VirtualBox 5.x

I'm running VirtualBox 4.3.34 on my workstation under Slackware64 14.1.
I started from the SlackBuild found on SlackBuilds.org, which builds
VirtualBox 4.3.24. I made some minor modifications and upgraded it to
the latest minor version.

This morning I installed a Slackware -current guest system, but when I
tried to build the VirtualBox guest additions, I got an error message
about an "unknown X Server version". My first guess is that my
VirtualBox version is too old to support the X server in -current. A
possible solution would probably be an upgrade to the latest VirtualBox.
According to the site, VirtualBox 5.0.14 has been released just yesterday.

Before I dive headfirst into this, I'd rather ask. Did someone here
successfully build VirtualBox 5.0.x on Slackware64 14.1? Any pitfalls,
caveats, whatever?
