I thought I was a little too vague...

I'm using the VirtualBox binary (so I can have usb support,) and I'm trying to 
get it under package management. There's not a Makefile just shell scripts that 
unpack and install.

I'm getting closer; I'm using using fakeroot and trial and error. I'll post a 
patch when I'm done for anyone interested.
