Thanks for contributing to FreeBSD.  I am sure that a vboxtool like this 
will be very handy for the people who need it.

A couple of random suggestions:
(sed 's/linux/FreeBSD/' *)... like in pkg-message.

can you rewrite this using sh? if not, you also need to include bash as 


make sure you honor ${PREFIX} and ${LOCALBASE},

one too many //



(skip )${LOCALBASE}/bin/


${INSTALL_SCRIPT} -m 0740 will do instead of the extra chmod, right?


make it an .* in and pass it so it can honor %%PREFIX%% and %%LOCALBASE%%


in pkg_add/make/ pkg-plist (with @exec, unexec), you will want to install a sample, and cmp it to conf so you don't overwrite users .conf files.
