Hello Everyone !
Did anyone tried to compile VBox host to run under Alpine (at least in
the HeadLess mode) ?

I started with it some time ago.

Seems like configure script needs glibc to run its own versions of sed
and other tools. They could at least have shipped statically linked
bins.

oh well...

Looking at the gentoo ebuild, it seems like it should be possible to
work around that by using a separate package named kbuild. I think we
can make this beast run.
