Yes. bt a simply "find . -type f | sort > /tmp/new.txt" in the Virtualbox 
1.5.0 source 
and a "find . -type f | sort > /tmp/old.txt"  in the virtualbox 
1.4.0svn4130 source
and then a 
diff -u /tmp/old.txt /tmp/new.txt would show you the new files... 

This was no good work which was quicked hacked together.

That is in my critical. You upload things without checking them intensivly. 
I'm not yet a DD, but this 3 commands above costs me 2 minutes to check 
which files are new. 
The upload after the debconf shows me that you doesn't really check what 
you do there.
