[VirtualBox] Linux guest additions installation fails due to missing kernel sources

If the installation of VirtualBox's guest additions packages fails on Linux due to missing kernel sources, just install them (google install kernel sources to find many detailed guides for your particular OS) as well as make and gcc.

Then, from a console do a:

export KERN_DIR=path_to_the_sources

before running the install script
