[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ pacman -Qi virtualbox-host-dkms | grep
Depends Depends On      : dkms  gcc  make  linux-headers

That's bad. Now that you mention it, I guess no pacman.conf workaround
or empty dummy package would prevent trying to build the modules, it
just would prevent installing the headers,that are useless for you.
