Description:

10 Months ago, in revision 59112 in SVN (not sure what release), VirtualBox added a libEGL implementation.
The current version of the virtualbox-guest-utils does not install this library, VBoxEGL.so.
A line, `install -m755 VBoxEGL.so "$pkgdir/usr/lib"`, needs to be added to package_virtualbox-guest-utils() in the PKGBUILD.

Additional info:
I'm not quite sure what release the library was added, but it's somewhere between 5.0.12 and 5.1.6.
I suspect it is 5.0.28 (the changelog mentions "several fixes for X11 guests running non-root X servers", which is what the library is supposed to help with).
This is a first step to fixing #49752. Once this is done, then a script adding VBoxEGL.so and VBoxOGL.so to /etc/ld.conf.d when 3D acceleration is enabled can be written and added to vboxservice.service as an ExecStartPost.

Steps to reproduce:
Install package.
Notice VBoxEGL.so is missing from /usr/lib.
This task depends upon
