# mount -t vboxsf myshare /Local
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on to,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
(for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might
need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program)

The virtualbox-ose-guest-tools specfile uses %{sbindir}/mount.vboxsf, but
that's /usr/sbin, so mount does not recognize it.

# rpm -ql virtualbox-ose-guest-tools -i
Name : virtualbox-ose-guest-tools Relocations: (not relocatable)
Version : 3.2.6 Vendor: openSUSE
Release : 1.4 Build Date: Mon 05 Jul 2010

WORKAROUND: mv /usr/sbin/mount.vboxsf /sbin
