[arch-general] libvirt and VirtualBox

On an up-to-date Arch x86-64 system, I fail to manage VirtualBox VMs
with libvirt virsh:
$ virsh -c vbox:///session
error: failed to connect to the hypervisor
error: internal error: unable to initialize VirtualBox driver API
Is this supposed to work out of the box?
Both VirtualBox (5.0.14-1) and libvirt (1.3.2-1) are installed from the
community repository, and VirtualBox support seems to be compiled in:
$ virsh -V
Virsh command line tool of libvirt 1.3.2
Compiled with support for:
Hypervisors: QEMU/KVM LXC UML OpenVZ VMware PHYP VirtualBox ESX Test
Furthermore, both VirtualBox alone (i.e. when managed by VBoxManage or
similar) and libvirt when used to manage QEMU/KVM sessions work fine.
Any hints about what I'm missing?
TIA & cheers,
This email fills a much-needed gap in the archives.
