Yes, thought of that and stopped and reconfigured for manual startup the 
Upsilon USB service and even removed the UPS USB driver, but still hit 
the same 'busy' error when trying to attch the USB device to VirtualBox.

I'll take a look.

'Not found' - probably because I didn't/couldn't install the 
libusb-0.1.12 port - even after disabling the FreeBSD version check in 
the Makefile that would otherwise skip the port install. I'l try that 
again, however and try to get make install to complete.
