I just typed "m-a a-i virtualbox" and it got me all modules installed
for my custom kernel. Admittedly, I haven't invested enough time into
its further development in the last years but it should be robust enough
to survive for a while.

And DKMS... oh, dear. Did they eventually manage to fix it, to not
blindly rely on /lib/modules/.../source (or build) symlinks as the
one and only source of information? Not having those links is like a
normal case with kernel+header packages built with make-kpkg on a fast
remote remote machine.
