I have a problem with virtualbox-ose port in freebsd.

ns387352# make install clean
===>  virtualbox-ose-4.0.12 is marked as broken: QT4 frontend requires X11 support. Run 'make config' again!.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/emulators/virtualbox-ose.

qt4 is installed, xorg is installed, what else is wrong??

Did you run make config? – m0skit0 Nov 11 '11 at 11:58
"make config" just gives you window of options where qt4 and x11 already checked.. – holms Nov 11 '11 at 12:55

There's condition in Makefile:

.if defined(WITHOUT_X11) && !defined(WITHOUT_QT4)
BROKEN=QT4 frontend requires X11 support. Run 'make config' again!.

so check your configuration, make.conf, src.conf again!

yeah WITHOUT_X11=true was set. – holms Nov 11 '11 at 17:21
