alexbrinister: There is no need for this hook anymore, I will remove it soon™. The dkms package now comes with pacman 5 hooks which should take care of the build when you install/upgrade/remove kernel headers and dkms packages.

The vbox hook does not work anymore because the VirtualBox source tree has changed name. Below is the correct code for the hook. Perhaps this should be a bug in the Github repository, not a comment here...

build() {
_version=$(pacman -Qs virtualbox-host-dkms | sed 's/^[^ ]* \|-[0-9]*$//g;2d')_OSE
echo "Building virtualbox host modules for ${KERNELVERSION} kernel..."
dkms install vboxhost/$_version -k ${KERNELVERSION}/_arch

This package is replacing the old virtualbox-hook.
