Get: VirtualBox-3.1.6-59338-SunOS.tar.gz

tar -xzf VirtualBox-3.1.6-59338-SunOS.tar.gz
alien -d -s -c –reloc_root=/ VirtualBox-3.1.6-SunOS-r59338.pkg

# patch it
gzip -d -c sunwvbox-1.0-20100217.diff.gz | patch -p0

# build it
cd sunwvbox-1.0
./debian/rules binary

# install the .deb package
cd ..
dpkg -i sunwvbox_1.0-1_solaris-i386.deb
