/usr/src Replacing /usr/src with your own copy will work just fine, as long as you can make sure to iron out any small problems that might be caused by doing so. One of those problems might be dependencies and version differences between the sources you copied and the versions that applications might need, although presumably you know what you are doing if ...

OpenBSD supports running (some) Linux userland programs. It does not support running Linux kernel modules. VirtualBox on Linux requires kernel modules (including vboxdrv, vboxnetflt, vboxnetadp, and vboxpci). OpenBSD can not run VirtualBox as a host. It can run as a guest VM in VirtualBox. You need to be running Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OSX, or even Windows ...


Sorry, NetBSD pkgsrc doesn't support a careless solution. Instead you should use a package manager like nih or pkgin. Under pkgsrc you have to force upgrades that ignores often linked file dependencies. Also copying the new version over the old pkgsrc can bring your pkgsrc tree in an inconsitent state.
