OK, I'm not sure how you could fix that :(
Sounds like a VirtualBox bug.

I just double checked my system and there is a stub port which installs a libusb-config script and /usr/local/libdata/pkgconfig/libusb*.pc to point to the base library (which has shims for libusb 0.1 and 1.0 APIs).

If you install /usr/ports/devel/libusb_base then pkg-config should find libusb (and so should NUTs configure script).
