Comment (by MoebusNet):

 OK, this is weird. After looking at everything I could at


 but not changing ''anything'', networking in the .vdi VM is working. I was
 running the VM from the DVD.iso install, shut it down, booted up the .vdi
 VM and networking started up. Posting from the .vdi VM now.

 Here is the .vdi VM output of:

 # ifconfig em0
 em0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
         ether 08:00:27:31:64:61
         inet6 fe80::a00:27ff:fe31:6461%em0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1
         inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
         nd6 options=21<PERFORMNUD,AUTO_LINKLOCAL>
         media: Ethernet autoselect (1000baseT <full-duplex>)
         status: active
 # dhclient em0
 dhclient already running, pid: 999.

 Networking may or may not work again on next boot-up. I wasn't able to
 find out what driver was being used.
