The vboxbuild script in the virtualbox-source package fails if the initscripts package is not installed (i.e. using systemd) because it depends on the functions script. It also throws a warning if rc.conf is missing, but this is not fatal.

Additional info:
* virtualbox-source 4.1.18-1

Steps to reproduce:
1. Remove the initscripts package
2. Run 'vboxbuild' to rebuild the kernel modules
This task depends upon
