Needed this today so hacked together a quick patch. The configuration already defaults to building vbox-imgmount if a Linux host is detected so we didn't need to make any change there. I'm not sure if this is directly usable or not, but attaching for what it's worth. I now have a working vbox-imgmount on my system -- the real challenge is getting the behemoth to build without hitting out-of-memory issues. ;)
