[Pkg-virtualbox-devel] Bug#889730: virtualbox-dkms: No rule to make target '/var/lib/dkms/virtualbox/5.2.6/build/vboxdrv/linux/SUPDrv-linux.o'

Package: virtualbox-dkms
Version: 5.2.6-dfsg-3
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

The issue arose after I upgraded from kernel version 4.13 to 4.14.

The problem has been addressed in bug report #886747. However I can't
verify the alleged solution, since the URL mentioned in the report
(https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=886474) is invalid.

I followed the advice to upgrade the kbuild package, but to no avail.

Here's the make.log:
