I'm not quite sure what it is you're trying to accomplish, but I'd look
to using NFS.   I'd probably create a local host only interface with say
10.10.10.0/24 for the network and probably have the freebsd VM use
10.10.10.100,  nfs share out to 10.10.10.0/24 and then mount
10.10.10.100:/usr/src /import/freebsd

or something like that.
