virtualbox xf86-video-virtualbox compile fails with "KERN_DIR does not point to a directory"

In my case, it's a permission thing.
Root, on my system, gives no world access, by default.
Assuming kernel version 4.0.5-gentoo, I had to
Code:
chmod o+rx /lib/modules/4.0.5-gentoo
chmod o+r /lib/modules/4.0.5-gentoo/* # Not sure if this was strictly necessary

I generally also have to
Code:
chown -R portage:portage /usr/src/linux/
so that portage has the ability to do the needful.
