Probably it would be even better to remove the packages
virtualbox-guest-additions and virtualbox-guest-modules completely as
Arch Linux is fully supported by the installation script of the iso
installed by virtualbox-additions. And the guest additions installed by
this script are working perfectly out of the box on Arch Linux guests.
