I've actually taken the 5.0.4 ports that Jung-uk Kim had created and made
the fixes to them to make 5.0.16 compile with them. The only reason I have
yet to submit the updated port is because virtualbox-ose-additions still
doesn't compile and I haven't had a chance to fully fix that yet.

I have no intention of taking over maintenance of the port, unless needed,
but I do want to help get 5.x into the ports tree, so once I have all the
ports compiling, I'll submit a PR to get the port updated.

Thanks,
Naram Qashat
